    I used DVDDumper do dump game to 2Gig SD and put all 3 .iso on pc how do I join them? I tried this and it didn't work::
    when you copy them across rename them to something that you'll remember like 1.iso, 2.iso, etc....
    that'll help you remember order of parts too.

    When you have all of the parts press Windows Key + R and type in CMD
    you should end up with a black screen with some writing.... The command Prompt.
    Type DIR and press enter and make sure your iso's are in the same directory as you are.
    then type COPY /B 1.iso + 2.iso + 3.iso complete.iso

    This will combine all the parts into a file called complete.iso and you can burn this....

    As you can see most people will use Wifi as it's quicker and easier.

    why didn't it work? did it give you an error message, or did the computer tell you literally, "it didn't work?"

    Did you use the cd command to get to the directory where the files reside?

    what directory are the files in on C:?

    you need to use CD to change to that directory i.e. CD C:\ISOS

    then run the copy command listed above

    and make sure you put spaces between the plus signs and the names of the files.......

    I think they should be called: 1.bin + 2.bin + 3.bin awesome_game.iso, instead of 1.iso + 2.iso

    Well you can if you want, but then it won't work as the plus sign is seen as a character of the filename - being valid under XP for a LFN character.

    i.e. you told it to copy "1.iso+2.iso+3.iso" greatgame.iso

    But if you are not going to bother even trying what is the correct answer............ [​IMG]

    i didn't even know you could split an iso and maintain the extension.

    it would have been easier to split it with something like 7-zip and then just rejoin them.

    I guess he meant an auto-splitting during dumping the game on SD-card [​IMG]

    I am still having trouble: this is what I did!

    I have 3 sections of a backup named RZDE. They are in my c: drive

    At the command prompt, I enter dir and I can see RZDE1.iso, RZDE2.iso and RZDE3.iso
    I type this command: copy/b RZDE1.iso+RZDE2.iso+RZDE3.iso RZDE.iso
    and then it says RZDE1.iso Access is Denied 0 file(s) copied

    What am I doing wrong?

    Put a space in between "copy" and "/b" so it is "copy /b".
