    if its anything like windows or linux you would have to CD/ into the folder containing your files first if you received that error.

    COPY command is a batch command (windows command) ! It does not exist on Mac as Mac are not windows (DOS) operating system but Unix operating system (like Linux, BSD or Solaris).
    You can achieve the same thing with :
    cat file1 file2 > file3
    Where file1 and file2 are the name of the files you want to join and file3 is the name of the output.
    "cat" stand for Concatenate, and "> file3" stand for "print the output into file3" (replacing the previous content of file 3)

    For it to work you need your terminal to be on the directory where your files are. Use the cd command to do it (cd stand for "change directory")
    As an instance, if my files are on the folder "foo" on my desktop then it is :
    cd ~/Desktop/foo

    Well... If you have 2 shards of an iso, simply cut in half, and you put it on a third file then this third file is the iso. Just call it "something.iso". (If you have forget the extension on the filename it is normal your computer do not auto-detect it as an iso, or anything)

    But are you sure you had iso shards at the beginning ? Idk how cleanrip work but USBloaderGX rip DVD in .wbfs format by default. Splitting the file in something.wbfs and something.wbf1 when it's bigger than 4GB. If it is the case, concatenating the 2 files give you a .wbfs file, not an .iso.

    Why do you want to recombine the shard in the first place ? Cleanrip and USBloaderGX cut them at 4GB so they can go under the limit of 4GB per file on FAT32 filesystem (the formatage of most usb key and external drive) And I believe most USB Loader and emulator can deal with split iso like that anyway, don't they ?
