    yesterday i downloaded my first wii iso.the game was wii music since i only got for it being 5 parts to download and about 450MB for all 5 parts.i unzipped part 1 know that would be the only i have to unzip out of all of them used the password given to unzip it.password worked.i uzipped a zip that had other zip that other zip was the one i need to use the password for.the game came out to about 4.37GB as expected.that zip that was 4.37GB doesn't unzip.am i suppose to burn a zipped file or an unzipped file.again this was my first wii game downloaded.trying to unzip the file i get this message the archive is either an unknown format or it is damaged.

    right now i'm downloading Tatsunoko vs Capcom Cross Generation of Heroes for wii and unzipping the part 1 download i see another zip in there as well although i'm not downloading the file i see there is going to be another zip within the zip file.please tell me what i can do to make wii music work i its not really a damaged file.

    also can i use any dvd cd to burn wii games and at what times speed i got a soft modded wii so i'm going to end up using wii gamma.i think it says i should burn up to 4x speed but i here people burn wii games at 1-2x speed.what is the best speed to burn wii games and what is the best dvd burner program to use.

    EDIT:

    this is my first dvd burner i bought and got today but look at the con i should be able to use more than just nero to burn dvds right.

    Sounds like you've associated ISOs with Winrar (or it's ilk). The 4.37GB will be the iso file (and if you show extensions you'll see that) and hence the one you burn.

    This is a common problem. You didn't disable the built in windows anti piracy measures. Windows has a special thing that checks when you're downloading ISOs. It is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32. All you gotta do is delete that folder and you'll be good to go.

    OK first of all the 4.37GB file is not a .zip file, read carefully what does it says, I'm thinking it says .iso and that is an image and it has to be written into a DVD (not a CD) and the speed depends on your writter and media, the best is to have a less than 3 years old DVD writter and use verbatim, sony and/or the best brand you can find (Imation is not a good brand, ok?) and if the DVD says 16X on top, then burn it at 16X, not 4 or 2 or 1, because some media only allows to be burnt at 8X - 12X - 16X...!!!

    EDIT: Nero is an excellent burning software..!! [​IMG]

    If it's 4.37GB, that is what you will burn. ALL Wii iso's are that size. I am guessing your computer isn't recognizing the ISO, as an actual ISO, and appears just as a zip. Just burn the 4.37GB ISO at 2X speed using IMGburn. (its free, and very dependable, google it) Just don't use DVD+R for burning. Use DVD-R. You should be able to tell from the label on your DVD.

    @samagon - thats a pretty nasty thing to tell someone to be honest as you could make a mess of thier system - its not funny at all.

    @fst312 - if you open winrar on its own and go to OPTIONS - SETTINGS - INTEGRATION and untick where it says ISO and click ok , the icon for ISO files should return to normal. Right click on the 4.37 gig ISO file and select open with - and pick either nero or imgburn and tick the box , always use this program ... should make your life easier in the longrun to both identify an iso , and to assossicate it with the burning application.

    i think i didn't explain it the right way the 5 parts i downloaded were each in a zip that contain anothe zip with a part for each one.when i unzipped the second part 1 there was another zip with the game written wii music.iso

    this is the zip file names MUSICA_OSKARN_part01 after unziping that i get this OSKARN_MUSIC.part01 and in that zip file is another zip file called Wii Music.iso*

    WiiMusic.iso IS NOT A ZIP

    [​IMG]

    thats the ISO image of the game - right click and open it with imgburn or nero

    the reason it looks like a zip is because you have it assossicated with winrar after installing that , but if you take off the assossiciation as i have explained above it will be clearer to you

    Code:
    Every single new person to the scene asks about discs. Use DVD-R discs as they are most reliable. DVD re-writables dont work 90% of the time and its best to totally avoid them if u dont want headaches. DVD+R can work , but its not a guarantee and you may waste a lot of discs trying to get them working. The best brand recommended by almost everyone is Verbatim DVD-R. Use the free program IMGBurn to burn the ISO at Max speed to being - any issues try reducing the speed (usually older drives)

    My problem is that whenever someone asks such basic questions and doesn't capitalize his sentences i automatically assume they are trolling and would have enough technical knowledge not to delete system 32. But i am a tad touched in the head and highly cynical.
