    This is kind of a strange situation...

    I use an iMac at home with no DVD burner. However, I've got a dvd rip on my hard drive that I need to move to my computer at work (which does have a dvd burner), so that I can burn it there.

    The file I have has 3 vob files, VTS_01_1.VOB (1 GB), VTS_01_2.VOB (1 GB) and VTS_01_3.VOB (109.3 MB) as well as the VIDEO_TS files.

    The vob files are obviously way too big for me to burn to a cdr; I'm wondering if there is any way to cut them so that I can fit them onto cdr's and then rejoin them on the other computer?

    Or is there a simpler way for me to move them that I'm missing?

    Thanks

    Can you rip it on your work computer?

    There's nothing to rip. I have the ripped files already on my hard drive at home, those are what I need to move over to the other computer.

    Throw the files on an external hard drive or your ipod.

    I would if I had either of those.

    Actually, I found a solution. There's a nice little freeware program out there called MacHacha that seems to have accomplished what I wanted to do. It cuts the vob files down to a size I can save to a cdr, and the files can be rejoined on the other computer.

    Thanks to all for their suggestions.
