    So I was dumping my gamecube and wii games off of my wii and getting them ready for my new computer build to emulate them, and as I was reading a few posts on the cleanrip website (program used to dump games) I noticed that my gamecube games were 1.4 GB as opposed to 1.35 GB. Same with my wii games too 4.4 GB as opposed to 4.37 GB. Now my question is did I dump my games incorrectly? Thanks so much.

    If I recall correctly the sizes are:
    - GC ISO - 1.35 GB (1,459,978,240 bytes)
    - Wii ISO - 4.37 GB (4,699,979,776 bytes)

    If they are correct to single byte, You are OK [​IMG]

    First read this as ISO site.

    Be careful with that stuff anyways Carry on although I know Wii ISOs with Garbage data are all 4.7Gigs without they can be anywhere from 256mb to 7GB with Dual-Layer DVDs.

    There are also some dual layer Wii games that are in the 7GB range, not sure on exact bytes.

    here are all the Full clean iso sizes:

    Wii single layered
    If it's 4 699 979 776 bytes, it's unscrambled.
    If it's 4 700 012 544 bytes, it's unscrambled with unscrambler 0.4 which adds an extra 32 768 bytes to the file (JESUS release)
    If it's 4 736 698 368 bytes, it's in raw format and must be unscrambled.

    Wii double layered
    Unscrambled : 8 511 160 320 bytes
    Scrambled : I don't think anyone ever dumped a DVD9 scrambled iso

    GameCube
    1 459 978 240 bytes

    it's no DVD, it's an Wii iso image.

    Where are you getting 1.4 and 4.4 from? Windows explorer tends to round off a lot. To find the exact size, right click the iso and choose properties.

    Looks like your computer just rounded up.

    True dat. It's entirely possible that the actual size is 1.35Gb, but it takes 1.4Gb of the allocation table due to the cluster size used and various other factors.
