Ok, i was recently shown a method of creating iso's using moogui's program.. Which creates the same file layout as the original disc.. and it just creates an iso... Now would it run any better or worse after optimizing it with quix? I don't really even know what the optimizing does to be honest, i just have always done it. Thanks ahead for any information.

optimizing was created for the many xiso creation tools that don't follow the official rules of xiso creation lol. qwix also has the ability to cross link identical files, basically that means if a file (md5 comparison ensures EXACT file) is found more than once on a disc, it will remove all copies from the image and only include the file once. wherever else it was suppose to reside on the disc, is automatically crosslinked to the one instance of it. This can, in some cases make your iso much smaller biggrin.gif.
