    I think you can buy high quality DVDs which hold a bit more than regular DVD-R. Otherwise, you're kinda screwed.

    um, should be able to burn just fine, I have the game and its the standard wii game size -

    4.37 GB (4,699,979,776 bytes)

    Never seen anything with a .wii extension. I'm guessing that isn't really the game.

    You need to find a .wii to .iso converter, if i remember correctly the .wii format is the raw data of the disc.

    I remember there is a release mislabeled (.wii instead of .iso, though I don't remember which game it was), so be sure to check the file size for the first released wii games.

    Anyway, here are the possible size :

    If it's 4 699 979 776 bytes, it's unscrambled.
    If it's 4 700 012 544 bytes, it's unscrambled with unscrambler 0.4 which adds an extra 32 768 bytes to the file (JESUS release)
    If it's 4 736 698 368 bytes, it's in raw format and must be unscrambled.

    for DVD9 : 8 511 160 320 bytes, unscrambled.

    If you use unscrambler 0.4, you will have to hex edit the .iso to remove the extra 32 768 bytes to make the iso fit the 4 699 979 776 bytes size before burning.
    unscrambler 0.3 didn't adds the extra bytes, but I don't find it anymore.

    Anybody know where to find version 0.3 again ? I'm looking for it for a long time now. Please contact me by PM, or link, or upload it to the download section. Thank you.
