Now this would be truly great! With this, Wii images would be of the same size on HDD as on WBFS, maybe even smaller.

It's quite easy to implement - ISZ compression is per-sector, so the only additional step you need to add to the copying process - to compress or decompress sectors in memory, using ready-to-use libraries zlib and bz2. ISZ is already supported by Daemon-Tools and Alcohol 120%, I hope ImgBurn will support it soon too.

Everything you need is some time, and this:

http://www.zlib.net/zlib-1.2.3.tar.gz
http://www.bzip.org/1.0.5/bzip2-1.0.5.tar.gz

If you do this (and raw disk access, of course!), it would be the ultimate WBFS solution.

Anyway, thanks for what you have already done!
