    A while ago I thought that people were just misspelling "IOS", but it seems that they meant compressed isos. What are they? Of the little info I could find, it seems it's like a way to put more games in the same HDD space.. is it true? Cuz I usually can't get more than 15 games in my 40 GB partition, and being able to put more would rock!

    Never mind... it seems that ISOs can become smaller on Windows, but they still take up the same space on WBFS drives...

    i think the c stands for compressed, not custom...i believe its just a scrubbed iso, without all the padding to make it a proper disc size.
