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.

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