    hello

    i would like to know if something exist to make a .nds file more smaller.
    several files are 128mb, and it take a lot of space, is there a way to resize these files?

    thanks

    yep trimming them is the only way. and how small they become after trimming varies on the game. how big is ur microsd card i might add? i'm thinking u have 1gb, so i suggest get a 2 or 4. they're pretty cheap nowadays

    Use a rom trimmer. It removes the garbage space in roms. I use NDSTokyoTrim. It is easy to use and trims fast.
