    Ok, so I created a DVD, made the ISO and went to burn it.

    Unfortunately, a DVD is only ~4.7gb (single layer) and my iso is more than that.

    I don't have a dual layer burner.

    What can I do?

    Is there a way to burn a 'multipart' dvd without re-creating new ISOs?

    Nope, you need to regenerate it if you want to split it. You could always generate it at a lower resolution...

    That's what I was afraid of...it takes sooo long to create.

    DVD Shrink is a free download that will definetly "Shrink" to a 4.7G disc and I believe it also has splitting capabilities. I have used it with success but I am no expert on it so you may also need to get a virtual DVD player which will play your ISO image. If so, you can try Dameon, I think is the correct spelling, as it works well too.
    If you do a search, you will find guides on how to use DVD Shrink.

    DVDShrink (free) will easily do what you ask. When you run it don't use the icons to load your ISO. Hit Ctrl+I and point it to your ISO. You do not need any virtual drives.

    You have to carefull where you get it from as many are using the DVDShrink name and charging for it and/or adding tool bars. Only click the Download button.

    Although many consider it 'evil' it's legitimate uses are many, trimming, combining, remapping audio and subtitles, creating ISOs from VIDEO_TS files and of course shrinking oversized vids. It's also great for making sure your files/ISOs are DVD compliant as it's very picky about structure.

    NOTE: DO NOT click on the homepage link it is bogus and untrustworthy, just hit the DOWNLOAD button.

    A special thanks to DarqueMist for pointing this out to me.

    It has legitimate enough uses that its creator has gone on to work with Ahead in developing Nero. Nero 6 ultra includes the app called Nero Vision Express (simply vision express in version 7) that has basically the same functionality as DVDShrink

    Nope. NVE is an authoring app used for converting, creating menus etc. Nothing at all like DVDShrink.

    MysticEyes ... could I be confusing NVE with Recode 2?

    Yup. And Recode doesn't have all the nice AEC enhancement choices, which do make a difference depending on the source material. But using this little starter app will allow you to choose what's best.
