    Well, so when i was formatting my DVD-RW, it said that it had 4.38 GB. After the format was done, it had 4.20 GB. I was like, WTH. So I need to compress a Mario Kart Wii . ISO (which is 4.37 GB) just a few MB's back. How can you do this? And could you make the .CSO back into a .ISO without making it back to its original size? And the Title+Description? Thanks again my fellow Tempers...

    Why are you formatting your DVD-RW? Just erase it and try your burn again. You only need to format if you're going to use packet writing or something via the OS, not burning an ISO. Unless Mario Kart is dual layer, it should fit just fine.

    I'm thinking you've hacked your PSP, huh? I don't believe Wiis can play .CSOs, instead they have scrubbed .ISOs which means all the superfluous data is erased therefore shrinking the game size... and also cISO.

    Why would you burn to an RW? Why not just a DVD-R?

    Nope works for both, internal drive reads disc full of ciso fine. Bar owners with new drives.

    From the readme

    - DVD: You can burn a .ciso image directly on a DVD (on Nero "All files, burn as "mode 1" "2048 bytes" per sector )

    Also you can create a DVD in UDF format from Nero UDF (UDF Only) or using Ultraiso, no directories, no superfluous files with a max of 8 .ciso files as the current UDF support implemented is very limited. It works on a USB DVD and also on the internal DVD drive (if your console supports it, sorry black wii owners).

    I think RWs are even less reflective than a normal writable disc, and my wii has a hard time with DVD-Rs unless i burn them super slow, so i dont think an RW would work.

    Yes, but only on DVD-R or DVD+Rs. The Wii's Drive cannot read DVD-RWs at all.
