Dear User,

Unfortunately, IA doesn't have a built-in capability to split the output build.
It used to be important in the past, but not so much these days.

As work-around, I may suggest you to make a Compressed WEB EXE build and put the first web media block on the first dvd, and then the second one on the second dvd, prompting before the web media block statement is reached to insert the new dvd, etc.

Hope this helps you.
