    hey guys,

    is there a list of trim-able roms anywhere?

    if not, maybe we should start one.

    thanks.

    Almost all roms are trimmable, and as far as I know the software for pretty much all the backup devices all do it automatically.

    If you're referring to ripped roms, then that's a different story.

    Ripped games have either had files taken out or downsampled.
    Trimmed games have just had the junk removed that was added to make the ROM a full card size.

    yeah that's true. trimming only removes file padding at the end (rather, it should be only removing the padding)

    no they aren't, you'll have to trim them yourself.

    and thanks for the feedback guys.
