Either use a dual layer dvd which is 8gb or just split the file with an archive to become 2 x 4g dvd, which will be cheaper.

Hello,

You can get dual layer DVD. But why is the Windows 7 file so big? It should be only around 2GB+.

Hello,

You can get a dual layer DVD and burn on it. A dual layer DVD has a capacity of up to 8.5GB.

As long as the file size does not exceed the capacity of the DVD, it won't.
