    I think you need to extract them, I never used roms in zip files with emulators, you are talking about Wii emulators right?

    yes i am

    its just that i only have a 4gb sd card so having them in zip files would have saved some space

    What roms are you talking about? GBA,SNES or NES? BTW I have an 2gb sd card on my Wii and i have tons of roms and i still have a lot of space left. So 4gb shouldn't be a problem.

    It depends on the emulator you are using.
    Some emulators are compatible with compressed files (zip, 7z), but limited in the file size it can open (if there are too many files in the 7z file, it will tell you it can't load the game.

    Some emulators are also compatible with Samba (LAN network folder sharing, loading roms from your computer)
