    I tried downloading some isos off bittorrent but they are like 20 files were something.... are they suppose to be 20 files? I thought it was like 1 file and it was 4gb (the size of the whole thing was right 4.13gb) Did i download it wrong or is it right? cause all of the roms i find are like 20-30 files also sometimes ziped in rars

    a wii iso is a single file (.wii (scrambled) . iso (unscrambled)).
    releases are rared in 50 or 100 mb files.

    Use winrar to make them into one file. Raring them just compresses the size.

    Open first of them and drag-and-drop file placed into to the desktop. That's all.

    Do a Google search. This is not something new. Rar'ing has been used for years. Read up on it.

    Downloading a release is in one of two formats:

    releasename.iso = 4.7GB single file
    or
    group-release.rxx = 80 files 50MB each

    If you got a ton of rar files, then unrar it and you'll get the iso. If you got the iso, burn it.

    If you got anything else, you didn't download the release. I don't know what you got.

    seems like you dont know what winrar is. They compress the files in such a way that its split into separate files, i guess its easier to distribute and has better compression that way. If you uncompress one of these files it will uncompress the whole file thas split among the archives.

    Edit:spelling mistakes

    Jesus maxlifan, people told you the answer about 10 times in this thread and you continued to abuse them. You should learn to recognise when people are helping you.

    If I was a mod I would be giving you a warning so that you learn some freaking respect.

    max, People were trying to help you and you claimed you knew what winrar is but obviously you didnt. People told you numerous times what to do and you were rude and then someone points it out and you're rude again. No offense but you're not the kinda of user id want in this community either.

    This is exactly why most noobs never get their questions answered. Firstly, spend at leat 2 min. and find the answer yourself. Stop expecting to be spoonfed and ask a question that hasn't been answered a million times in every forum for the past 5 years.

    maxlifan, you're an asshole. MC DUI is a respected member of the community, and you're in no position to tell him he's doing a poor job at contributing to the forums. Go away.
