Try right clicking the program instead when you start it and selecting the option "Run as administrator"

dear btk1w1,

thanks for your prompt response. i tried running as admin by right clicking as you suggested, but unfortunately it is still unresolved.

i tried troubleshooting it for compatibility, and it still doesn't work. i don't understand why the pop up msg keep on saying "file access denied"?

hope you can help me with further suggestions? thanks!

✔ Best Answer
Do you split directly from the DVD source or do you first copy the movie to your PC? It would be good practice to first copy the movie to your PC if it isn't protected.

Once it is on your PC first thing you can check is the permissions on the file you are attempting to split.

To do this you right click the file you wish to work on and select Properties. Select the security tab at the top of the new window. Highlight the username you use. If anything other than full control is checked, you may run into permission problems when working with the file.

If your user has administration privileges you should be able to change the permissions by clicking on Advanced, hilighting the user, click "Change Permissions" then double click the user name again and check "Full Control".

I have looked online on another forum regarding hjsplit and other users have experienced a few bugs with it.

I personally have used a different file splitting program which works a treat, although I haven't used it to directly split from a dvd source.

It will split files however you need and provide a small executable so the recipient can merge the pieces fuss free.

I just tested it on my Windows 7 machine, on a 4GB dvd iso split into 10MB pieces and it performed task brilliantly.

Hope this helps.

dear btk1w1,

i want to thank you again for your prompt reply and again for the detaiedl help. i'm sorry for the delay in accessing it until now due to the busy schedule.

for the moment i have given up on hjsplit on my computer.

i tried your second instruction on the link for gsplit. after downloading and playing around with the software, i got used to it. so far, i am liking it. it can split dvd. but, for some reason one of the split files did not work. i'm not sure if it's the software or the dvd...

for the moment i'm satisfied with the results from gsplit. i want to thank you again for your helping me and for directing me to that site.
