Hi, I have a disk image that is 7.76 gb. I would like to burn it to DVD so I have a hard copy. I'm wondering how to do this exactly, can I make two DVD's or does it have to be a Dual Layer DVD? Here is a screenshot of the files I made the disk image of:

Many thanks if someone can help me out.

Dual Layer DVD or use DVDShrink to make it smaller

With DVDFab you can split a DL DVD onto 2 DVDR's.

Think it works from files/folders as well as from discs too...

Cool, thanks guys. Is DVDShrink going to lower the quality much?

yes, it will lower the quality quite a bit. and, if this a bootleg you plan on trading or seeding, DO NOT TRADE/SHARE THE SHRUNK VERSION! i would suggest splitting the files up onto 2 data dvd's as copies for trading/seeding and then use the shrunk dvd copy for personal viewing only.

just get a dual layer DVD9 and burn it so you don't compress the quality..
