    I would just burn it on a dvd disc. If you can't you can always break it apart so it'll fit.

    I would go the DVD first, otherwise

    If it is in divx format, then you can get a program called virtualdubmod which will split it into whatever size files you want.

    Other option is using the nero startsmart video editing program to cut it. But this crashes on me very often.

    The program I sue to cut mpegs is called videoredo a very quick easy to use program but I am not sure what restrictions are on the trial version.

    avi files expand in size if you want to burn them onto a dvd that will be watchable on your tv. You will need two DVDs if you want good quality.

    is it in avi format already? If so:

    open the file in virtualdubmod ie file > "open video file"

    then go file > "save as"
    check "segment ouput file"
    change the "limit size [in megabytes] of each segment to" to 650/700 mb
    under video at the bottom, change "video mode" to "direct stream copy"

    then give it a name and click save. you'll get a bunch of files of your selected size. This will cut the avi in possibly unwanted parts ... like halfway through a point ...

    If you want to cut it in specific places, after opening it, use the start offset and end offset buttons [the last 2 buttons on the bottom].

    The highlighted bit is your selected portion and when you click "save as" it will save that portion [make sure you "save as" NOT "save" otherwise you will overwirte your original file]. Do that repeatedly ... it wont tell you how big each portion is until you save it and check the size.

    The important thing to note is to make sure that under video at the bottom, change "video mode" to "direct stream copy"
    this means it will take less than a minute to save each portion otherwise it will take a very long time ....

    if it is not in divx and you want to convert it ... thats another story.

    ALSO if you choose to cut yourself take note of splinks779's comment about 700mb avi file on your computer is not neccessarily 700mb on cd. I have personally not had this problem with avi's but it IS a problem with MPEG's. So after creating the first one, you might want to see if you can burn it to CD
