Transfer of large proteins (>500 kD) to nitrocellulose. How?

Dear collegues:

For some time now I have - unsuccessfully - tried to 
transfer large proteins (MW range 500-700 kDa) from SDS-PAGE 
gels (4.5%) onto nitrocellulose membranes.
I have tried semi-dry and wet blotting procedures with 
varying buffer and current conditions.

Has anybody succeed in transfer of such large proteins?
Any ideas, suggestions or complete protocols?

Many thanks in advance,
