    Ok, I tried backing up my copy of Super Paper Mario and as I don't have wireless at the moment I split it into 5 files onto my SD card.

    Now I have 5 .ISO files but I don't know how to turn them into a single file.

    I believe I saw a Command Prompt command to do this, but I've been searching all day and found nothing.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    This command should work
    copy /b part1.iso + part2.iso + part3.iso + part4.iso + part5.iso complete_game.iso

    Also note that it has to be on an NTFS partition or the merge will fail when it hits the max FAT32 file size (4G).

    I thought the max FAT32 size was 2Gb? Anyways, I should be ok as it's formatted as NTFS. [​IMG]

    Hello folks, I am having trouble getting the complete iso that I built using the Imgburn software method to work. I get a error message saying that the iso is incomplete or damaged or something every time I try to launch it in dolphin. Also when I try the command prompt method of joining iso parts together (after ripping my wii disc on my my with Cleanrip and an sd card) it doesn't work. This is exactly what I enter:copy /b SF8E01.part0.iso+SF8E01.part1.iso+SF8E01.part2.iso+SF8E01.part3.iso+SF8E01.part4.iso SF8E01.iso DonkeyKongCountry.iso (and also tried SF8E01.iso) and it says it cannot find it. Someone please help.

    Such old. Very necro. Wow.

    Imgburn cannot be used to rip Wii discs.
    The "copy /b" method will fail on FAT32 drives.
    That command creates the result ISO in the same place as the parts, so it'll be trying to make a 4GB+ file on FAT32.

    As I am new at this, I realized, in the command prompt I didn't navigate to where my iso parts were stored first. Even after doing that first it doesn't work and asks ("More?")

    I had my files on disk E while the OS is on C:/
    Just make sure they're not on a removable disk, that may cause troubles.

    Thanks. I don't understand why the command isn't being accepted. What exactly did you do to successfully combine the parts my friend?

    the copy /b method above.
    However, you do have to change the directory of the cmd to where your files existed
    Say, the cmd starts at C:\users\user> , while your files are at E:/SP2E01/MERGE
    You'll first type "E:", which changes your directory to E:\>
    then you type "cd sp2e01/merge" UPPER/LOWER CASE AND /\ DOESN'T MATTER FOR ME. and the display should change to E:/SP2E01/MERGE>
    (WHATEVER YOU DO, MAKE THE DISPLAYED DIRECTORY TO WHERE YOUR FILES ARE,then use the copy /b)
    You should be good to go!:)

    Thanks for the reply. I also have mine on the E drive but when I try to navigate to that directory it gives me a message saying it is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
