    Been trying to scrub isos for forever. Everytime I try to scrub a game iso, no matter what it is (Zelda,Paper Mario, Brawl, etc.) the scrubbed iso turns out the exact same size as the original. Yes I have a key.bin in the same directory. I've tried this with Wiiscrubber 1.0 all the way to 1.31 and it's still the same. Help anyone?
    I'm using Vista, if that matters.

    READ THE FAQ!

    It's only answer number 2.

    Scrubbing an .ISO only replaces the garbage data with 0s.

    File size will always be the same.

    The purpose of scrubbing is to be able to use WinRar/WinZip/7zip to pack the .ISO to be smaller.

    Super Paper Mario not zipped up = 4.37 GBs

    Zipped up = 500 MB

    actually this is obvious right? all iso's are the same size when ready to be burned(in iso state that is) and the only thing scrubbing is good for is for downloading(or uploading) games to or from the net. when extracting a downloaded Rar pack it'll then return to it's normal 4,7(or 4,3 depends on how you look at it) iso state ready to be burned.

    This is for when you want to distribute the iso in an archive. When you burn it'll still take up the whole disc.

    There's a new version of WiiScrubber that can make multigame discs like people have been doing with the GC ones.
    Haven't tried it out myself though.
