    Well, I dowloaded a few Wii isos. I proceeded to extract them and not a single .iso appeared. Nothing. Nada. Compressed files or regular files won't appear.

    Any help?

    Edit: WinZIP, actually.

    Are you trying to open the iso with winzip? I get that impression from the screenshot and the name in the title bar of winzip.

    If not, have you tried using 7zip, or winrar? Both are better then winzip in my opinion.

    I'm trying to extract the .rar so I can burn it to a DVD.

    I'm downloading WinRAR right now. If that doesn't work, well, I'll try 7zip.

    Edit: It works with WinRAR.

    It's like someone not knowing how to drive asking how to steal a car.

    If you can't use basic decompression software - it's time to go to walmart asshole.

    And to what someone said a few up, you nailed exactly what he's doing.

    Uhm, why do you need to uncompress an ISO file??
    The iso is the game itself, so no need to open it in winrar or anything

    If you are confused because the (compress) in the title: thats just because its scrubbed

    No need to flame me. II just worded it wrong. I've extracted several other Wii iso's before. It's this specific one that won't extract. I didn't word the topic right. the file is saved as .rar file.

    Obvious bitch troll is obvious

    Anyways, I used WinRAR and it works! Yayzorz!

    Screenshot is inacurrate. Meh, but that's no reason for Ossot to go flaming.

    Edit: Well, I was also flaming so...yeah

    That's what I thought also from his screenshot, that he had the iso already. I'm not too familiar with winzip though, as I used 7zip/winrar, and figured I may have misinterpreted it...
