Transfer all the three files cut and copy files to other drive having  space.In this way the c drive which has os installed will have much space for writing it to the cd.

Are you intending this burn to be playable direct from CD?

If not, I would look at Winrar, which can make a compressed archive file of any size - just tell it 700MB and it'l create 700MB chunks you can then burn.

If yes, then look at Nero.  the Ultra edition has a movie recode option which allows you to recode a movie to span CD's.

And like ded9 says, you also need sufficient space on your 'temp' drive which by default is C - most utilities will allow you to pick another drive for its temp storage however.
use dvd
you can use easy video splitter to split the first 2 files into sizes less than 700 MB


If the format is not being recognized then convert the files to mpeg format using VCD Gear

You can download VCDGear from

Then try to use splitter to split the files

Finally use nero burning rom to burn these files onto a CD


Note :: There should be enough space on C Drive to burn the files ( 900 MB should be enough .. 700 for the CD and 200 extra for OS purposes)
If you don't want to/can't split the video, then you need cd burning software that will let you burn a file onto multiple cds.  

Check out http://www.canadiancontent.net/tech/freeware/CD+Burning/

Every program on that list is free, and at least one offers this option.

But, splitting the file really is preferrable if you can do that.  I'd only not bother if I was transferring it.  Also, do you have DVD burning capabilites?  (much larger disks)
