How to highly compress large files.

So I am wondering how to compress a 6 GB iso file into a 2-4 GB file to be burned on a DVD. Other than winzip etc.,but can be formatted into a zip or rar or .7zip file.

winrar can split your file into volume sizes, then in turn you can burn them on media and then reassemble them

Mount the image with Daemon tools if you are going to install it on your own pc.

Oh alrighty.
Well I did mount it, but I want to make a copy of it because it is taking too much room on my HDD.

Ever thought about converting it to mpeg? Most dvd players can read mpeg/mpg format and it could save you a lot of room

If you have MagicISO you can compress the ISO images into UIF format.

So I compressed it with magic iso from 6 to 5.8 so is there any way to keep all the file in one and somehow compress it to about 3-4 GB using winrar or 7zip? Without splitting it.

Not sure why you don't want to split it? it's the easiest way to do it.

Split the rars, burn them on different discs.

Put the discs in and copy the rars to a folder, extract the ISO image from the multiple part rar, and you're done.

Well I've tried that and it doesnt work because when i try to exract them it says it is corrupted and I think it is easier to just have one dvd with everything instead of two.

Yea but you cant just shrink 6gb down to 4. You can consolidate a little bit but not by 33%

Then I don't know what else I can do because I splitted it and burnt it on dvds and then tried to extract but I can't because it is corrupted or missing files. Well I've seen some files on torrent sites having like games that are usually 6Gb compressed into 2gb I've heard they us uharc or something like that.

You have to make sure all of the rar files are in the same folder when you try to unarchive it.

Try burning it at slower speeds. This is usually an issue for me too, as I usually get errors when trying to burn anything faster than 8x or so. Also make sure it checks the files after its done.

Impossible is nothing

But you would probably need to write your own compression program. I've seen it done, but I don't know of any retail products that can do that kind of compression.
