you can try shrink certian files like the program files and leave the run files unshrunk.
or just get a new burner.
or just get the original disc.

Another possible option would be a firmware update for your drive. I managed to get dual layer support for my laptop drive from a firmware update.

You need a Dual layer DVD disc and a Dual layer capable DVD burner. I don't know if it breaks in to two discs. You could try.

if i was in your position which im not sure you even look at this n e more its a fairly old thread

but i would first try DVD SHRINK if the ISO would not split then yeah your best option is to get a dual layer burner

but always try the free option first
