    Possibly a pointless question, but to save space on my SD card (8 GB) what are the MIN files I'd need on the card to be able to run cheats? If the list of games helps:

    You want to save space but you haven't trimmed any of your games?

    trim your games, rough estimate of 400-500MB saved

    For DS games, despite the apparent size savings I'd rather have the full (1:1?) game. For Wii games, guess I'm somehow fine with the "garbage" data not being installed to a USB drive.

    Trimmed DS games are still a 1:1 copy. There is no data there, it's just that the DS carts are made in fixed sizes.

    Trimmed ROMs have a higher tendency to freeze or lag, and sometimes they won't work on WiFi.

    I have most of the "My (insert language) coach" games (Spanish, french, Chinese, Japanese). I say most because I think there's two "My Spanish" & "My French" Coach games, (starter) & intermediate.

    Yeah, he must be studying to become either a multi-translator or a professional assassin.

    Or I just really like languages, if there was a German Coach (Of the "my (lanague) coach" series) that'd be nice.

    So trimmed games just freeze & lag more? I can't even get the DS (lite) to connect to the net, so I don't care about Wi-FI.

    Yes they do. However, most games should be just fine trimmed, but I see you've got all three Castlevanias on your card. Games that already have problems while untrimmed should never be trimmed.

    i'd suggest trimming too.

    my case is different though, i can't play all of those games in one day.
    i'd dedicate at least an hour of my time in one of them.

    since i have a laptop, netbook, a smartphone and a PC easily accessible for
    me, i keep around 15 games (64mb-128mb) at once in my card. (i have a 8gb microSD as well)
