Playing with .bz/ compressed files?
#1
I saw that linux iso plugin can create compressed files... but can it play them? I compressed one and it won't "see" it when I try to select it from the list.

I have the iso's already pulled and on my harddrive. Could I use image burn to compress them?
I see it doesn't. I'll try magiciso.

no one will do that you probably downloaded one and want to compress it will just forget it
if you have a dvd \cd or even files it will hapen but already made iso wont be compressed even if you do it will damage it

Well I know with Wii/Gamecube you can compress them and save quite a lot of space (around 400MB/game) and all it does is remove the garbage that they put in to keep the games all the same size or something like that.

Wouldn't it be possible to do that? I don't know how it works...

If you compress an ISO using Linuz Iso CDVD, only the plugin itself can read them. It works well and gives good compression. You just can't use it from the main CDVD -> ISO selector menu, and have to use the plugin itself to access the image.

Also, if you want to revert the compressed image to normal ISO file again, only the plugin can do it since it uses a proprietary compression method that standard tools can't decompress.

BTW, another option would be to make windows use the compressed folder option (thx to Air for reminding me). Never used it myself for ISO files but I imagine it should be reasonably good.
