Thread: Compressing Iso And Bin Files

  1. #1
    i just tried compressing some bins and iso files there with winrar and i'm very surprised by the results.

    i compressed an ISO of Grand Prix Legends from ~180MB to ~62MB and i compressed a BIN of Midnight Club II from ~808MB to ~750MB

    anyone else tried this?

    edit: sorry, got figures wrong first time, wrong file :">

    The first looks like very good compression.

    I think the best software for media compression is uharc, but it is very slow because of the compression ratio, but ideal for creating compressed files for kazaa downloads.

    you didn&#39;t mention what type of compression you used

    had a try myself with .RAR - .iso compressed to around 41%
    i&#39;ve tried bin/cue before, i can&#39;t remember the figures but it was crap, not worth the effort

    Sorry I commited a mistake not supposed to mention Media Raider. But in CD Space Software I think there&#39;s compression for ISO.
