    What is file chopping? I read on threads that a lot of users "file chop" the wiikey update file. What does it do to the image? Is it necessary?

    You dont need to do it. Just burn the image and it will run.

    'filechop' is a utility program that can either 'chop' (shorten) or 'pad' (lengthen and fill with a certain value) a file. In the situation you refer to some people need to use filechop to 'pad' a WiiKey disc image to the proper GameCube size to have it burn correctly so the Wii will recognize it.
