Windows 7: How do I BURN large ISO files into MULTIPLE CDs (not DVDs)

There are only 2 connections on a dvd drive, nearly impossible to get it wrong, and it`s held in by screws. And most Dell`s have their own plastic rails for dvd/cd drives and hard drives.

And there are usually spare ones inside the case, usually green.

I have a question. What kind of drive does DELL Optiplex GX280 A08 has? Is it IDE or SATA? I'm talking about the CD/DVD drive. I decided to buy a DVD drive but I don't know if it is SATA or IDE.

There is a way to boot from USB if your BIOS does not support it. First you burn PLOP Linux to a CD. Boot from the CD and a menu will come up. Choose to boot from USB. It does work, I have used it twice.

Watch a few YouTube videos to get familiar on how it works. If you do a YouTube search of PLOP Linux, you will find many videos. Here is just one.

The first time I used PLOP Linux, I choose USB from the nenu and the flash drive booted right away. The second time I used it I choose USB again but it did not boot. I had to choose "PloPkexec Boot Manager" first (it's in the menu) and then choose Start Windows 7. The flash drive then booted.

Look at the cable connected to it. If it's a wide ribbon cable it's IDE. If its a thin cable it's SATA.

This method worked for me! Thanks! I can now run in wind 7 without buying DVD ROM HAHAHAHA. I am now installing drivers and essential programs to it. I can take care the things here from now on. Thank you guys!
