It more than likely trimmed the ISO of filler data for you. The game's files are only about 550 MB and the rest is unneeded filler that was cut off. It'll play fine.

First, don't worry about the second file. Second, if you transferred the file over as wbfs, which is what you should have done, it is going to be around 550 MB for Super Paper Mario. The roughly 4.5 GB size is the size of a standard single-layer Wii disc. On a lot of games, much of that is unnecessary empty space that gets cut out when it's turned into a wbfs file. Everything is fine. Try playing the game.

Game sizes will vary, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which is on a dual-layer disc, is huge. Back in the day of disc-loading, people shared copies of the Smash Bros. image with the cut-scenes edited out so it would fit on a normal single-layered DVD.

Brawl has a dual-layer disc (2 x 4GB) and needs about 7GB of the space. Super Paper Mario uses a 4GB single layer disc (and only uses 550 MB of it)

I remember getting an iso and be surprised by the size. Don't worry, if it works, don't fix what's not broken.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
