So, in my original question, the blame lies solely with

	3) ISO-9660 standard

? No single file on a ISO9660 filesystem may exceed 4Gb?

Is there some newer, superceeding backwards-compatible standard -- all the new 
DVD devices are now offering the media to store large files? Or is fat32 the 
only cross-platform option today?
