Thanks, I use this all the time but may be useful for others.
For command line explanation see http://technet.micro...036(WS.10).aspx

-m -u2 is needed for large files

Also don't forget to make sure you create the ISO file on an NTFS partition if the iso file is over 4GB as FAT32 does not support files over 4GB.

The ISO file needs to be max of about 4.48GB or it won't burn to a '4.7GB' standard DVD.
