Windows 7: I have an .iso of 4.3 gig - do disks that size even exist?

I have an .iso of 4.3 gig - do disks that size even exist?

Do I have to buy a disk to watch the .iso or is there a way to extract the contents? This item is from a conference and they gave me a massive 4.3 gig .iso - seems very large or is that usual? Thanks

DVD are 4.7GB.

You can use programs to extract the file from the .iso I know WinRar can do it I'm sure others can to. I normally use PowerISO to work with my iso files.

The easiest way would just be to burn it to a dvd.

There are also Double Layer DVDs that hold 8.5gb of info You can buy blank ones & burn the .iso to it with most of the newer model DVD R/W optical drive Burners I use Freeware program ImgBurn

I'm not 100% sure on this but I think VLC player will play ISO's without the need to burn or extract.

Fun fact: A normal DVD will have 4.7 GB
A double layered DVD will have 8.5 GB.
Blu Rays are known for being big, there are 25GB Blu-Ray discs, and that's only the beginning. There are 50 GB versions, and a BDXL one that is either 100 or 128 GB.

OMG! As usual the amazing advice from this forum! Thanks everyone! Yeah, it was a massive conference in Vegas I was more interested in just having a look inside the .iso and viewing the slides/ powerpoints etc rather than burning the disk. Let me go ahead and try your advice. THANKS EVERYONE
