    Can't scrub Geometry Wars Galaxies

    I've got an unscrubbed ISO of Geometry Wars Galaxies. I used WBFS Manager for Mac OS X to copy it to my hard drive, and it got scrubbed to less than half a gig. I then tried to use WiiScrubber 1.4 to created a scrubbed ISO as a backup, but it just creates a 4.7GB file despite the fact that WiiScrubber reports the data as being 489MB. I tried copying the ISO back off the WBFS hard drive (which of course gets unscrubbed) and then scrubbing that, but the same thing happens. Any ideas?

    I searched for "geometry wars wii" on TPB and downloaded [Wii]Geometry_Wars_Galaxies[PAL][MULTI5][ESPALWii.com].rar. It's a full-size image and did take ages to download, which was very annoying since the scrubbed and zipped ISO is just over half a gig. I would create a torrent of my scrubbed ISO, but my upload bandwidth is pathetic (<512k) so it would probably be quicker to download the 4.7GB ISO :-/

    The scrubbed ISO, marked often as game-name(compress).ISO must be further processed by winrar. All Wiiscrubber does is replace the random non-compressible gibberish non game data with nicely compressible data.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Thanks. After reading the instructions for WiiScrubber I realised that the data gets replaced with zeroes, not chopped off, which necessitates compressing the file to get it down to the scrubbed size
