Copying is Legal

OK. I already have the Topo disc and it appears to be legal to make a copy as a backup. In trying to copy the North Central Topo, I am running into a problem with the file being too large for a single DVD. This is probably my general lack of computer knowledge as opposed to a GPS issue. But how do I get the backup copy made? Compress? Multiple DVDs?

I tried compressing the Garmin files but the compressed file was merged in with the un compressed and I couldn't isolate it and burn to disc When I try to burn to a blank DVD, I get a message that the file is too big for the DVD. I never get an option to use a second disc.

I am using a PC running Windows 7, if that makes any difference.

Thanks for all the help!!!
