Probably the easiest way to transfer whdload packs like this is to bundle them up into zip archives of about 650MB or so each, then burn them to a cd-r using imgburn and set the filesystem to ISO9660. So you have one huge zip file the size of a cd on your cd. The big zip file will have its filename truncated to 8.3 on the cd.

Simply unzip it again on the amiga side. All the long filenames inside the zip file are preserved.
I guess this is going to be very time consuming on an A500+
