    @Title

    Do I just extract with Winrar = Original ISO ?

    or

    I have to do something with the WiiScrubber program?

    Thanks in advanced!

    That won't get you the original ISO file.
    You need to use get the corresponding .DIF file then unscrub it with WiiScrubber to get the original file back.

    Why would you even want to revert to a full image?

    Because that's the untouched ISO, I believe.

    But that unscrub really get you back the data that has been scrubbed? So the CRC is the same with the untouched ISO? If so, then... how?

    Yes, unscrub will get back the original ISO with all the junk data intact.

    Okay... but if it's just junk data, what good is having it back?

    I'm pretty sure a scrubbed image can be modified, patched, etc.

    How to do you "unscrub"? Is there a direction somewhere?

    Why do you want to unscrub?

    I don't need to unscrub to get the original iso than burn? I can just burn the scrubbed image? at 4x.

    There's an "unscrub" button in WiiScrubber. Press that, then specify the .ISO and .DIF files.

    I think it's good to be able to have the junk data.. Ninty could at any time release a firmware that random checks games, and if the junk code isn't where it should be, the game would stop. It's basically future-proofing wiiscrubbed games.

    Yes. Burn at the rated speed of the discs using Imgburn.

    They would need to own the DIF file for each game, about 1Go per game so every time you load a game the Wii would need to download 1Gb to check if the junk data has been modified (the junk data isn't deleted, it's filled with FF to make it compressible).

    So it's impossible, completely impossible.

    anyone know how to compress the iso itself? i don't care if it's a tad larger then the winrar files, it just saves me about 20 mins when I can directly burn / apply patches on my server without having to extract it.

    wait! really i thought you needed to unscrub before you burned your wii game? but then again if i did have to unscrubb i would need the diff file which i dont have.

    also on the side note im new to this so can anyone answer my question?
    can you scrub GC games?
    and i got this one game but when i extracted the archive there was another one inside and theres nothing inside that one, but it is 4.3 gigs so is that the game itself?
    also how do you burn multiple gc games into one disk?

    @ZXero not entirely sure about the need for a massive bump either but OK.

    1) Scrubbed games are no different to normal games, the only reason for the diff files is if you want to restore it for some reason (archival purposes I guess, there is no other reason for it).

    2) GC games: they work differently to wii games. You appear to be wanting this:
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/GCMUtility
    or this:
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/GCM

    As for your "archive in an archive": we tend to use the .iso extension and a year or two back winrar and 7zip and a bunch of other compression programs (which you will probably be using) added support for "normal" iso files, as console isos are not "normal" it would appear as though the file is corrupt or there is nothing in there.

    Multiple GC games are taken care of with various tools, start here:

    Here's mine uncompressing (unscrubbing) and burning tutorial.
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=160...p;#entry2045366

    The junk files are sometimes needed to run the game properly (some just extracted and burned ISO's won't work ,like in my case,so I made a tutorial).

    Hope this will help,
