Well, what do you mean "the same size"? What is the size?

How come you are having problems to burn it?  You need to explain everything throughly. The downloaded version is the compressed, so t's always less than the actual ISO, if you are talking about that.

but... shurken means it's smaller on a MULTI-ISO disc.

Put simply, it means what it says.

The game works shrunk (I.E. Smaller than 1.35~gb) and on a multi-ISO disk. (More than one game on a disk, made by using MultiISOCreator or something similar. Check tutorials section.)

Exactly.

For whatever technical reason all gamecube games are supposed to be 1.35 gb.  Of course not every game made is that big, so to make up for it dummy data is included to stretch it to be the full 1.35 gb.  With some games it is possible to run a shrunken version, one that has had its dummy data removed.  This is only useful for storage purposes (a smaller .iso takes up less room on a hard drive) and for multidiscs (can only hold 3 games on a multi disc if they're not shrunken, you could have a hundred copies of animal crossing on one disc though if it was shrunken)
