    Hey guys, I downloaded super monkey ball for wii & uncompressed it to get the .iso file. When i check properties of the .iso, for "type of file" it says "WinRAR archive"
    Also when i double click the .iso file it says "the archive is either in unknown format or damaged"

    Is this normal? Will it sill work if i burn it?

    My friend has a modded wii & i'm going to his house this weekend. I don't want to burn it for nothing.


    Thanks

    Wii games are formatted with a filesystem unrecognized by your computer, so it's only normal that the disc image is unreadable/unrecognizable.

    P.S. the RCMP are on their way to your door [​IMG]

    you don't need to open the iso you need to burn the iso to play your game .

    When you installed winrar you selected ISO as one of the files it was to manage.
    So it has taken control of your ISO's now

    Right click on the ISO , select OPEN WITH and from there select Nero or IMGBurn and it should resolve your ISO issues
