Hey guys, I just set up my Wii to be able to use USB Loader and I had a few quick questions that I thought you beautiful people might be able to help me out with. This mainly just pertains to GCN stuff. First off, I'm seeing a lot of people talk about using the clean rip program to get their Gamecube iso's. Is that better than just ripping using USB Loader? I don't figure it is but figured I'd ask. Secondly, when I rip a Gamecube game using USB Loader, even when I have the compress setting turned on, it still seems to rip to the full 1.35 file size. With or without, it still says it's going to be 1.35gb. Any ideas? Finally, speaking of compressing Gamecube iso's, I've seen people say that that's not the best idea and it can lead to compatibility issues. Is it really that big of a deal? I would just use 1:1 files but, certain *ahem* friends of mine only seem to have compressed Iso's and that seems to be my only option for certain titles. *edit* So I just found the Gamecube Iso Tool and I was wondering if I use that to change a .gcm to a full size iso does that count as a 1:1 as far as USB Loader is concerned? Any help would be greatly appreciated, gang. Thanks a million.
