Can't read ISO of wii download

Somewhat of a newbie here...
I've successfully downloaded torrents using Limewire, extracted WinRAR, etc. I am also familiar with mounting ISO images, burning images to DVD, ripping DVDs and DVDshrink.

However I am having trouble with Wii games. I extract the ISO using WinRAR. But the ISO is not recognized by any ISO program I have tried, and I have tried several: DVDDecryptor, PowerISO, Daemon tools lite.

Now NERO appears willing to blindly write the file to a DVD - but still it does not show what the contents of the ISO file are.

I know that original WII disks are not readable on most DVD readers, but it was my understanding that downloaded wii games converted to ISOs should be burnable on any DVD writer.
And yes I have a wiikey - just havent soldered it yet

Also these games are 4.14G (not double layer)
The actual torrents are from piratbay:
Fantastic_Four_Rise_Of_The_Silver_Surfer_NTSC_Wii-VORTEX
Pirates_of_the_Carribbean_At_Worlds_End_NTSC_Wii-VORTEX/
Resident_Evil_The_Umbrella_Chronicles_USA_WII-DMZ
Scarface_The_World_Is_Yours_NTSC_USA_Wii-VORTEX

I cant believe all 4 of these are bad ISO's
Any ideas?

is the file's file extension .iso? if it is then it should be recognized. try burning the file using the slowest speed and see if it works with your wiikey.

another idea: download this wii emulator called DolphinEmu:

64 bit: http://www.dolphin-emu.com/downloads.php?cat_id=7&download_id=90
32 bit: http://www.dolphin-emu.com/downloads.php?cat_id=7&download_id=89

then open it up and set the directory to wherever your .iso file is. it should pop up as whatever wii game it is. double-click it and see if it runs. if it does then the .iso file is fine and you shouldn't have any problems burning it and playing it with your wiikey.

i would recommend running your wii games off of a hard drive with a usbloader but that's just me.
