    When a wii ISO is downloaded it has like 20 zip files. Why? which one to pick? and why so many?

    most likely they are not zip files but .rar files. DO some research and you might find your answer. I'll check back in a few days and if you're still too lazy to find your answer I'll help you out.

    If you have that question you need to take a few steps back and learn the basics.....I don't feel like explaining it all.....

    UMM. I think i was mis understood. srry.

    i meant to say why so many zipped files (rar format.)

    they all contain the 4.37 gig game, and i was wondering why it wont be easier to just download one of them.

    The .iso of a Wii game are split up into roughly 90 .rar files. The scene does this so that if there is an error in a .rar file, it can easily be replaced whereas if it's a .iso file, then you'd need to download the whole file again.

    You just extract the .001 one or if it just has the game name.
