    I have an iso file that is too big for a 4.7GB disc. So I went out and got some dual layer discs that are 8.5GB and the iso is still too big. So where do I get the bigger sized DL discs?

    I hope this is not more jap crap where we can only get them by going to japan or mail order like it is with all made in japan optical media.

    Sorry to dissapoint, but 8.5 GB is currently the largest capacity for dvds out now to consumers. If it's larger than 8.5GB it might be a "blu-ray" ISO.

    To check if it's a "dvd" ISO you can try opening it up with DVD Shrink.

    If you can, then you can edit it, such as removing unwated languages/subtitles to reduce file size, and then you can still compress it with dvd shrink or with dvd rebuilder if the file size is still larger than 8.5 GB. After that burn with IMGburn and your good to go.

    If it's a blu-ray ISO, then your only options are to burn it to a blu-ray disc and playback from a blu-ray player, convert it to a different format (such as mp4,avi/xvid) and play off HDD, or convert it to dvd, using programs such as ConvertXtoDVD or DVDFlick, but I'm not exactly sure if those programs accept Blu-ray ISO's.
