    Sometimes when I download a rar file. Most of the time I get an .iso which I burn with imgburn. But I got one that has .wii file, and Imgburn won't recognize it, so I changed it into a .iso and it says "image is too large for disc".

    If any help that would be great!

    Thanks

    It needs to be converted to an iso. Look in the utilities section (or google). There are several tools that convert a .wii or .wod to an .iso

    .wii files need to be unscrambled... look at the download center at gbatemp I made a right-click tool for easy unscrambling .wii files on .iso files

    Why do they scramble the isos into .wii sometimes though?

    "They" don't. The Wii discs are scrambled from Nintendo. The data is first pulled off (still scrambled) and usually called a .wii or .wod image. It then needs to be unscrambled into a standard iso image. Most people do this before they distribute but some don't.
