My main goal is : to burn a firebird database which size is nearly 3GB
on one DVD. The problem is that, due to the ISO standard, I cannot
burn a more than 2GB file. If I want to do this, I have to use UDF
standard, but then when I try to access to the database on the DVD,
the engine tell me it's not a valid database file. That's why I tried
to split the database in three parts, in order to be able to burn them
on the same DVD with ISO standard.
So the three parts have to be on the same DVD but since the letter of
the DVD device can change from a computer to another, I cannot use
hard file paths.
