Powerquest drive image 7. Can't read file from DVD

My problem is this. i have take an image from my laptop top using drive image 7, it's about5.2 GB(i also split it into to files to save me using and 8gb dvd.). I transfered it to my main pc and the burned it to dvd. I then tried to load it with the drive image cd but it says disk is corrupt or windows cannot read the disk. So i then used partition magic to split my 40gb drive in to a 32 and an 8gb. I then transfered the image from main pc to the smaller of the partitioned drives. When i boot from the drive image disk i can read the back up file but it says there isn't enough room on the HDD, just because i partitioned it to a 32 gb. Now i was wondering if there was any way of fooling/altering the image file to think that it is only say 30gb so that it would install so i can recover all my files and settings. I had a look at the .sv2i file and tried changing the size in there but it still wouldn't look at it. Is there a way to salvage this info and settings. I have software installed to connect to my compnies server on it and don't want to get the IT dept have to go and reinstall it all.
You'll probably be better off burning to dvd but at 1x-4x rather than trying to hack your disk image.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
