    So since I got my Wii chipped, I decided to go check out some old GC games. I first had Wario World (.iso about 200 mb), burned it, worked perfect. Then, I had 2 other games with a .gcm extension. Double Dash and Luigi's mansion. After searching the web, I found out you could just change the .gcm to .iso. So I did and burned them both with imgburn. But as you can guess by now, they don't work. So, does this have to do with the Wii? As far as I know, the drive's pretty much the same and it should work. Then again, I don't know jack about this kinda stuff. So any help? Thanks. [​IMG]

    i downloaded this yesterday and according to the description the gcm file i got should work without me having to find a way to make it to an iso.please tell me if i'm right i never downloaded a gamecube game if this can work as a gcm file i will be happy because i can fit at least 3-4 games on one dvd. i made 2 threads yesterday because i couldn't figure out how to make a gamecube game into an iso.
