ISO9660 certainly supports files longer than 2 GB.
But doing so requires multiple file sections identified by multiple
directory records. But some "receiving systems" only implement the
ISO9660 interchange Level 1 or Level 2, rather than the full blown
Level 3 of the specification.
But I don't know of an operating system for which an enterprising
programmer could not write software to read Level 3 ISO9660.
