Help! Burning ISO files larger than standard 4.7GB?

Hi all,

So I have several games on my computer in ISO format. Now that I have them installed, I don't need the ISO files anymore... my desktop has a 500GB HDD, and the ISO files are taking up tonnes of space. However, I would rather burn them onto DVDs for safe-keeping (in case I ever have to re-install the games again) rather than deleting them.

The problem: several of the ISO files are way over the standard 4.7GB of DVDs... most of the games consist of 2, 3 or even 4 ISO files, each ISO is over 8GB in size! So ofcourse, my DVD drive refuses to burn them onto my DVDs since the files are too large!

So how do you get around this problem? What should I do?

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks

Pirating games is much more hassle than it's worth.

Exactly my point and "THIS FORUM DOESN'T SUPPORT PIRACY"
