    1) You have a few options. Either buy a bigger disc or modify the file downloaded using a program such as Wii ISO compressor. Before you do that, though, make sure you scrub the game using a program such as WiiScrubber

    2) Soldering takes a tad longer and you have the risk of messing something up. Solderless is quicker, and if you made a mistake you can remove it. If you're out of Warranty or not putting a mod chip on your Wii will void it.

    not sure on the first one but all the iso files you download should be the same size as a wii game and should fit if its bigger use brickblocker this may shrink it to the right size not 100% on that tho the second one i would go for a solderless EG the twilight hack its easy and costs little and you dont have to take your wii apart to do all the info is here on this site to guide you along

    so far, Wii_games ISOs are either less than a D5 dvd-r capacity, or much more.
    the later be burnt on D9 dvd+r.
    i vote for soldered mod-chip, for reliability and simplicity and low cost.

    the torrents probably contain par files to repair any damaged downloads once unzipped they will fit on dvd no problem.
