I've been Googling like crazy trying to figure out why these Wiis keep installing discs at ridiculous sizes. When I go to install the game from USB Loader GX it takes seemingly forever (close to an hour per disc). When it's done, the game is listed as something larger than 5000MB. When I extract the game from the Wii using any different WBFS Manager (I've tried three), they come off at 8.75 GB. They can be scrubbed, but the images remain a good 4 GB larger than they should be. This makes no sense. It makes even less since that they can be played like this. What the hell is going on? How do I trim these huge images?
Both of my Wiis are 4.2 and were mod'd the same way (using a guide on this site). They have zero problems other than this weirdness. Both have WD My Passport USB drives that also work great.
Thanks for any help!
