How to Split a DVD ISO File


The ability to split your large DVD ISOs into bite-sized chucks, capable of being transported on smaller capacity media, lets you put your ISO files onto any computer or device not containing a DVD-Rom drive. Using the right software, you can split your large DVD ISO files into manageable pieces and later reassemble the chucks into a digital copy of the original ISO file.

Things You'll Need

  • PowerISO
  • Download and install a copy of PowerISO from the program's official website. Launch the program after you've completed the installation wizard.

  • Click the button labeled "Open" in the top left corner of PowerISO. Locate your ISO file using the explorer window that appears, and then open it.

  • Click on the "File" heading located in the top left corner of the main menu, and then select the option labeled "Image Properties" from the list of options.

  • Click on the "Advance" tab in the Image Properties menu. Under the Advance tab, click on the option labeled "Split to multiple volumes."

  • Choose the size to split your ISO volume to from the list menu box labeled "Volume Size." If your CD's maximum capacity is 650 megabytes (MB), select the option from the list menu labeled 650m. if your CD's capacity is 700mb, select the option labeled 700mb. Click "OK" at the bottom of the Image Properties menu.

  • Click the "Save" button at the top of PowerISO's main menu---your split ISO files will be saved in the folder containing the original ISO file.
