    When games are ISOd by release groups, they are padded out to fill out the 4.3GB of a DVDR, when they are unpadded back to game size by software, they are scrubbed,

    Read for some sizes:

    http://www.wiihacks.com/dumping-burn...file-size.html

    There's other lists aroud other forums that offer the same feature but prob with diferent titles, or search this forum for words such as scrubbed or padded.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt
