    Hi i have an iso of a game which is 4.37 gb ( obviously) and it cam down to 4.06 when scrubbed. my problem is that i have a 4.0 gb usb key drive and i dont know how i can make the iso fit on the usb using wbfs loader. the usb is perfect and i managed to play other games off it. now i have heard talks about the wbfs loader ( i am using 3.0) having the ability compressing the file size of the iso for you so that it can fit on the drive . How can i do this


    Thnx alot

    When you use the USB loader, it does decrease the size but it is still the same as when the disk has been wiiscrubbed.

    Well use a WBFS manager to install the non-scrubbed .iso into your USB pen (formatted to WBFS), and then use any USB Loader there is no such thing as a WBFS loader (although they load from a WBFS partition [​IMG] )

    If it is larger than the pen drive, there is nothing you can do. Either forget about playing that game or get a larger drive, probably a hard drive.

    It does compress files. Some games are nearly full sized when it is scrubbed such as Starwars: The Force Unleased. It only has 27 megabytes or garbage data while Hamster Heroes is only 150 megabytes when compressed.

    Burn it on a DVD-R, not a CD, and use a good quality disk like Verbatim or Sony. If you are going to burn it, do it about 6x.

    You could use winRAR to compress it and even split it into multi files like 4 or 5 1GB files.

    well this guy only need to trow 0,06 GB away. The solution is to remove the update partition before you scrub it.

    hey thanks supermod chips , okami works perfectly at burned 6x , now since i have been through spindles of trial and error and this being the first one to actually work, should i go about burning all games at 6x or is the speed relevent to certain games ?
