    So most games are less than 4,7GB but the ISOs are always that size. Is there anyway to compress them and make them the original size so more games are fit on my USB? [​IMG]

    You want to put them on USB for an USB loader?
    In that case use Wii Backup Manager, it'll automatically shrink the games for you.

    There are many methods of compressing Wii ISOs.

    For playing with Wii USB loaders:
    Use a fat32 formatted drive with .wbfs files.

    For absolute compression on your PC:
    .wdf.
    wbfs if using WIT is too complicated for you, or 7-zip compression on a FST dump for a Wii disc on your PC. Compressed FST dumps on PC is the smallest Wii games will go while keeping all content.
