    Wondering if this is possible. I realised I don't have any 4GB DVD's around, is it possible to burn a 4GB game such as Galaxy2 on an 8GB DVD?

    Sure you could, but that would be a lot of wasted space left empty.

    4GB < 8GB, so nothing wrong on the space side of things. As long as the disc format itself is accepted, obviously.

    Can you get 5 gallons of shit in a 10 gallon hat?

    (I think it'll work)

    Not a paper hat, I'll tell you that much.

    Slightly straying from the topic here however...[​IMG]

    But it should not be a problem.

    You could use Wiiscrubber Multiboot to burn 2 (or more) games on it.
    Never actually tried that though, but wouldn't know why it wouldn't work.
