    I believe this question was asked a couple of weeks back but no easy method was obtained.
    However Offline list has a module for it:
    http://offlinelist.free.fr/

    DS dats for offline list:
    http://www.advanscene.com/
    other systems dats (search for offline list on the page):
    http://www.gbadat.altervista.org/

    Once you have offline list set up hit tools -> options -> modules and select trimmer.
    Under plugins (beneath the modules box there is is a selector plugin.
    Right click roms on the list and choose add to selector, repeat as necessary, hit pugins -> show selector -> check Patch rom with modules -> extract all and choose your destination.
    The roms will appear there sans trailing 00/FF's i.e. trimmed.

    Hey, is it suppose to take a very long time to add ROMs to the list? And why are they being recopied into archives? :S

    Offline list's main function is rom verification and compression.
    It uses CRC32 checks which on large DS roms takes a nice amount of time and then it compresses the files to either 7zip or plain zip both of which can take a decent chunk of time (7zip roms can end up far smaller than the original too).

    Oy, any other alternatives? I just rather have all my NDS files uncompressed and using a program, drag and drop, then pressing a button that says "Trim."

    Also, after trimming ROMs, they're still considered "Clean" as long as I don't run them through a patching program, correct?

    EDIT: I found a working program! I'll make a new thread.
