    I've patched quite a few games using Wiigator's patcher and have always come up with 3.99G ISO's that always burn correctly. My understanding is that they should always be this size. I've patched a Mario Kart ISO using the same method, and I've consistently gotten 3.96 Gigs. I searched the forums and only came across one other topic where someone mentions this specific issue. It was suggested that the person simply re-try with no other programs running in the background, whichy is what I have done multiple times to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem? Has anyone tried burning the 3.96G ISO and gotten it to work? I don't want to waste a Verbatim DVD-R if there is anyone who can tell me that it wont work. Thanks in advance. If no one else has tried it, I'll give it a go and then report back so next time someone comes across this problem they'll know what to do. The ISO I have is NTSC-U and will potentially be running on a NTSC-U Wii. Thanks again for any replies.

    So is that just a problem with game compatibility regardless or how it's being patched? I know in the compatibility Wiki it says that people are having trouble with Mario Kart.

    I also get 3.96gigs no matter what I try to do? Strange like as none of my other games do this.

    The Mario Kart partition I create is 3.96 and it works as it says it does on the compatibility list. So, there is nothing wrong with it being 3.96 gigs opposed to 3.99

    What's important to know is that IT DOESNT PATCH ANYTHING. It simply pulls out the game partition and puts it in a new iso file.

    want to manually "patch" your ISO?

    get WiiScrubber, and save EVERY LAST FILE in the main partition to your desktop, keeping the file structure, and then write the files to a DVD in data mode...

    that's all the "patcher" does... just does it a little faster than you could, and puts it into an ISO for you

    Cool, thanks for the info. I just ended up burning the 3.96 ISO and it has worked so far. As for the compatibility list, I've had some games confirmed as working, that don't work for me. Thanks again for the info!
