    Could anyone please tell me how to trim roms?

    And how to know if the roms will work when trimmed?
    I assume we just use trial and error

    I have an 8GB mircoSDHC and plan to fit on as many games as I possibly can.

    Thanks!

    You take a small pair of clippers and carefully cut off the excess data.

    Alternatively you could use NDStokyotrim or any of the other trimming programs out there.
    All roms will work when trimmed with a decent trimmer btw.

    Properly trimmed roms always work. I suggest using NDSTokyoTrim.

    You can also go to your barber shop to get a trim.
    Or google romtrimmers because there are different kinds.

    The best rom-trimmer out there for the NDS is without doubt NDSTokyoTrim
