    I have tried search this forum and using google but really can't find a definite answer.

    I have some games backup'ed on my harddrive. Today I decided to go throu them and check which ones I don't need anymore.
    I came to Rampage Total Destruction and noticed it's iso size is: 4700012544 instead of 4699979776 as I know they should be.

    Is it a 100% bad copy or could this size be correct for this title?

    Few days ago I decided to burn first Kororinpa (which didn't have 'good size') and... it failed at loading via Backup Launcher. I don't know for sure if your title will work, but probably it won't. However, I'm not sure about this, so don't blame me if it'll work for you [​IMG]. I had only one file with incorrect size which I mentioned before.

    yes they are suppose to be that exact size.........but just to let you know, ive had many many that have worked fine...until ghostbusters and rbcountry came out. Even though they are the exact size they might not work. Ive had a lot of games freezing while playing. This may be due to a lot of bad copies.....apathy rips used to be great....even the forums out there arent listing many new games. I think the end of rips may be coming

    They have to be the exact size. Anything else won't work.

    4700012544 is not a bad size

    When the Wii was first hacked to dump dvds, you had to dump the DVD them decrypt them.
    Now-a-days you can just dump to ISO.

    This image was dump using the old method

    It HAS to be 4.37GB (4699979776 bytes) or it won't work. Scrubbed games are still 4.37GB (even though scrubbing will shrink the game, it will stay the same size when extracted).
