    my problem is...

    i downloaded a compressed wii iso (about 333 mb), and i want it to stay compressed when i pass it to my wbfs formated 1gb usb.

    when i try to pass it to my usb, it decompresses to a size of 3.6 gb. any little bit of information is appreciated.

    if its decompressed at 3.6 gb, then that is the size.
    Each game is a different size, you know.
    some can be 600mb, some 4.6gb, etc.......
    when you DL a game, its compressed to make it small for DL ing only.
    After its extracted, then its the correct size.
    also, when transfering to a HD with WBFS, WBFS will automatically shrink it.

    If you're using WBFS manager and you formatted your hdd to WBFS and you're using USB Loader GX then I'm like 99% sure that the game is still compressed, it just shows as 3.6gb

    Hope I helped ^^

    It does'nt matter what you use, USB stick, HD, format it with WBFS Manager.
    Nothing we told you is gonna change what your using.
