Make a disk image of it, and compress the image with Compact Pro then make 1.3 meg segments and copy.

Or, if you can't image the disk, just get everything and compress with Compact Pro...

There are scripts available for Disk Copy that allow you to segment a disk image. They can be downloaded from here.
