How do I Burn an 8 GB Data Image File to One DVD Disk?
(Disk in the drive image by Sergey Galushko from Fotolia.com)

Typical blank DVDs can only hold about 4.5GB of information. If you have a DVD disk image file that contains 8GB of information, it isn't going to fit on one regular disk. The solution, however, is to burn that image file to a DVD-DL (dual layer). These DVD-DL disks can hold double the information that a regular DVD can, topping out at almost 9GB of storage capacity. You will need a DVD burner capable of burning DVD-DL disks, however.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Insert a blank DVD-DL disk into your DVD-DL-compatible burner. If your burner is compatible with DVD-DL disks, the "DVD-DL" logo will be present on the front of the burner.

  2. 2

    Double-click on the 8GB data image file you want to burn. This will open that file up in the native Windows disk image tool.

  3. 3

    Select your DVD-DL-compatible burner from the drop-down menu.

  4. 4

    Click the "Burn" button to burn your 8GB DVD image file to the DVD-DL disk in your DVD-DL-compatible burner.
