    hi all hope someone can help i am trying to make a multiboot disk with mario sunshine, mario kart , super smash bros melee, and metroid prime on one image however , when i create the multi disk image i try to burn it and it say s unsupported image type, i dont know if this is because the image GCMUTILITY 0.5 projects is 4.00 GB (4,294,975,013 bytes) not

    Nintendo Wii ISO size: 4.37 GB (4,699,979,776 bytes).

    Nintendo Gamecube ISO size: 1.35 GB (1,459,978,240 bytes)

    im not really clear on this but i tried searching and found nothing really matching up with my problem ..

    also i have tried shrinking the game images separatly before making a multi boot iso out of them , same results also unsupported image type? anyone care to offer a helping hand , using IMGBURN software . tried the process 4 times and still same results ,

    thanks wiimii

    edit: does it have to be under 1.35 gig size? help

    the size doesn't matter with these. the max gc iso size was for the old gamecube, not the wii.
    and just burn the image with imgburn it recognizes it just fine [​IMG]

    i tried burning the image with imgburn as i said ? but it says unsupported file size? WTF ?
    what am i doing wrong,

    edit . do you know when it asks you to save the file type as when shrinking images . do i have to type .iso at the end of the file or leave it as mario for example as it makes a .gcm file i tried doing it this way and typing .iso at the end?

    does anyone know where i can get software which will tell me the region of the gamecube iso,s i have ?

    thanks in advance

    you should use gcos v3 instead of GCMUTILITY 0.5

    Shrink gc games with gcmutility and compile files with gcosv3.

    ps. you can change .gcm to iso. whenever you want. Just rename it.
