    I have The Legend of Zelda Four swords adventures. I extracted the .gcm files and it looks like this. Do i rename only one of them to .iso and that is the game or do I have to do something with all of them? Screen Shot 2013-08-18 at 2.35.56 PM.png

    That screenshot is all sorts of wrong too, if you have volume files; you just need to extract once. The screenshot makes it look like you unnecessarily extracted three times. Additionally you can remove the disc data from the iso and save some space, after all FSA is not even 500MB iirc

    You always extract the .rar, but you can also extract from the other parts.
    Just delete 3 of the .gcm files and rename one to .iso.

    What do you want to do with the iso?
    If you want to burn it, i donĀ“t recommend trimming/scrubbing it.

    Maybe you're using a PAL game on NTSC or vice versa.

    It depends if your using a loader like neogamma than there should be options to force ntsc to pal or pal to ntsc.

    Same goes for usbloaders.

    I asume your using dios mios correct? then when you select the game you want go to the options menu on the bottom left then look though the options you should see video mode i think, change it to Force PAL OR Force NTSC.

    NTSC is American game
    PAL is a European game.
