    I have the files for a DVD which amounts to 6GB but I cannot watch it as I dont have a dual layer burner. I thought I could create an image in Nero that I could watch, but Nero wont let me create an image that size as DVD's are limited to 4.7 is it? How can I create an image that size, anyone advise please?

    You need a program called DVD Shrink, do a google and download it. Its a free program and will shrink the file down to enable it to be burnt to a single layer DVD.

    DVDFab will split a large image over two disks, without altering the quality.

    You will not notice any quality loss, I've used DVD Shrink many a time, to reduce a DVD9 to DVD5 (8.5 to 4.7).
