A standard DVD is rated at (approxmately) 4.7 GB and a D/L is again, approximately 8.4 GB. So I am a little perplexed as to what you are attempting to do and with what. A little more info might be of help.

To burn a file to a double layer DVD, you need a double layer DVD writer. Once you installed that any good burning program should be able to do it.
