    Will this work to trim ROMs for burning to mini DVD-Rs, too? All the supposedly "properly" sized ones are listed as being 1.45gb, whereas 1.4gb is the maximum holding space of the mini DVD-Rs...

    No dolphin does not trim. you can use gcutil for that.

    you make a very common mistake. . GC isos are 1.35 gb therefore 1.45 million bits. anyhow you dont have to shrink or whatever it will fit

    Thanks. So is my computer just reading the sizes wrong, then? Because I'm looking at my entire ISO collection thus far (17 titles), and all of them are 1.46 gb... Except one GCM file, which is 1.38gb. Thanks for informing me!
