    It seems that those ISO are 4.7GB or 7.92GB and I only have 4GB SHDC. Is there a trimmer for it? (I got "trimmer" from DS Hack scene)

    When installing a game the loader will strip the iso automatically

    What do you mean? I meant I only have 2GB SD. Do I have to buy 8GB?

    Games are "scrubbed" when placed in a WBFS partition (the thing all SD and USB loaders use). When you place a game in this partition, it will scrub and shrink your ISO's size. (When you extract the ISO from the SD to your computer, it will reinflate to 4.38 GB.) The resulting size will vary with each game, though.

    I think ACME makes a sdhc- shoe horn to help you cram those games on there. Or I think they sold a sdhc card stretcher but it was only available on their website. While it doesn't actually stretch the sdhc card, it works by physically painting the inside of the sdhc card white and the outside of the card dark colors. This illusion is enough to trick the iso into thinking that it is actually bigger than it really is inside the card.

    Just make sure you use a sdhc stretcher and not a regular sd stretcher as the stretcher for the regular sd cards uses a latex-based paint and the sdhc is prone to latex allergies.
