    Now, imagine if there is a software that can scan the roms that have the overdumps. First, you scan the rom. Second, it will tell you that the rom has the overdump. If no overdump is found, that is fine. Third, you fix the overdump. Bam. There you have it.

    ...okay...So basically you want a program that trims roms? Sure...why not.

    It may help to tell what system you're talking about. For the wii, the 'garbage data' is generally removed from the start. For gamecube games kind of the same, though there are some games that sort of rely on 1:1 dumps. For other systems...I don't know.

    "Overdump" is a specific word describing an image of a ROM chip that has more data than what's present on the physical device. The more you know...
