    Hello

    I have the Wii Wode and I have some GameCube games that I load up off the hard drive for the Wode the Games work fine BUT I want to scrub them to make them smaller...

    I have tried the GameCube ISO tool found at: www.wiibackupmanager.co.uk/gcit.html and the games will scrub down to a smaller size but will not load with the wode or it will load BUT when you go to play the game it will freeze up.

    Also I have tried the 2 files found here... GCM and Scopy and they wont make my GameCube ISO files smaller at all... http://www.wodejukebox.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2431

    So does anyone know how I can scrub my GameCube ISO's and still have them work with the WiiWode ?

    Thank you.

    Scopy stores full size ISO files on the drive in a compact space smaller than the displayed full file size by not writing any blank sectors. So even though the file size displayed will be unchanged after Scopy, it will actually be stored in a smaller space on the drive. So you're not going to see any change by just looking at the file size, but you will be using up less space on the drive. I use GCM and Scopy to store all my ISO files.
