    I have some big files and I want to burn them to single layer dvd disks.
    Dmg files of 6 or 9 gigabytes.

    I wonder if there is a good application to burn them to dvd, even if this means spanning to multiple disks.
    I also do not know about dvd-format to use with big files(iso, udf etc)

    How can I do it?

    if you have a dmg that is bigger than 4.2 gigs, you will need to break it up across multiple discs.

    break it up using split and concat and burn your discs. Then put it all back together again later. Kind of a pain, but it works.

    Or, mount your Dmg/s and copy all the contents across multiple discs.

    and burn em.

    Toast Titanium is a good utility to purchase for this sort of burning. But it's not a must have

    The mac os Disk Utility does not have such capabilities?

    I would like to have a standard way to do it.
    I remember, back in the old days of pc without cd recording, I spanned software to several floppy disks with winrar.
    Even today, I can use it. Even to a mac machine!

    I hope there is a standard way to do it. I read several comments about disappointed users of split-conqat in versiontracker.
    After all I can understand that every software developer uses its own way.
    Something like the -standard through the years- rar option in pc?

    Check and see whether the current version of Stuffit can still split an archive (it used to be able to).
    Or search on Versiontracker.com for other alternatives.
    WinRAR IIRC was not a standard part of the Windows OS...
