    How do you know it's the wrong file size? Have you tried burning it? It may look like the wrong file size, but this happens more often.

    File size in should be 4.37,and in properties should be 4699979776 bytes.
    Unless its a cios,then that needs to either be loaded from HD device,or run through wbfs v6 and converted back to iso before burning to disc.

    most of the games are winrarred, so they can be smaller to download. most cases are scrubbed, so the update is filled with null bytes, and the winrar ignores the size of the update
