    Hey I know this is a painfully "n00b" thing to ask, but I got my first ISO for Fire Emblem... it has a lot of files, obviously, but I used the .rar and somehow it came out to be 4.38 GB when the source claimed 4.37, which would fit on my DVD while this slightly larger file does not... Any ideas why this may be, does anyone else have an ISO of this that can offer up advice? Thanks!

    So have you tried burning the 4.38gb version and it wont fit?

    I only have 4.37 DVD-Rs, which could be the issue, but I thought I read in a tutorial or two the "standard size" is 4.37, probably mistaken.

    Edit: sorry dunno where I was adding the "3" from my DVDR is 4.7... I am trying to use Toast to burn (am on a Mac), and the message I get is something along the lines of 4.39 needed, 4.38 available

    Maybe you should just try burning and see if it works

    Yeah, it wouldnt even let me get there, but more research shows Toast can be a pain and Disc Utility is burning, so keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks

    Have you already patched the game? Patching the game makes the filesize smaller.

    I did not patch it, it was my understanding that the backup launcher v 0.3 will be able to load a 1:1 unpatched disc, but while we are on that topic, and I am airing out my ignorance, what program would I need to patch, for lets say getting firmware updates off the disc for future releases or different region discs? Thanks again for the help!
