I have a problem.
I have a powerpoint and it is 5 megs big. My problem is that the computers at school do not read cdrw's. I have some other opitions. I could put it on my friends laptop and bring it to school. The problem their is that his comp. does not read cdrw and he does not have powerpoint or winzip. Shoud I install those things and use his comp or should I bring my desktop to school. It going to be heavy. i also could upload the file on the internet and download at my school. That will take time. Can you give other sugestions.
You can get programs that will split larger files into files small enough to fit on a floppy, you would probally need that program on both pc's though. I *think* microsoft backup *might* work, but i had problems with it. I used it to backup mp3's, but they might have been small enough to fit on one disk. Once again my memory fails me.

Try that, good luck.
Ps. Should this be in annother thread?
I concur with caddmann also the split and join programs are good. Just make sure you bring a disk with a copy of join along with the split files.
And why can't you put it on a CD-R may I ask?
I will not be albe to install software on my schools computers.
I will burn it on a cdr later after i am completly done.
I also found out that if you write at 4x or higher your cd-rom drive needs to be faster. so i will be writing at 1x. I will see if that works.
I'll take two... CPU's
Another thing about powerpoint...make sure it is in the latest version formatting for the slide show.
A normal presentation that should take 2 MB in W97 PPT format can take over 15 MB if made in W95/W5 compatible modes.
CD-Rs are wicked dirt cheap! Why can't you put it on one now?
It is done. I did it. I had to change the mode for writing the cdr
If anyone needs a good file splitter check out JoneSoft File Splitter. its free and does not require any program to combine the files back together.
