    Not that I know of. The DS is not powerful enough to decompress files in a suitable amount of time.

    Search for DSCompress, it supports Gzip and plain zip although for day to day stuff I would not suggest it. Perhaps for some homebrew you do not often use or even stuff like GBA roms if you use a GBA expansion (Chuckstudios also ad some stuff with his 3 in 1 tool).

    I used to have a tool to compress GBA roms. It was quite fast, the screen would stay red for a few seconds and then start the game. I wonder where I left it...

    Edit: it would be red and then blue. I found it again: http://www.dwedit.org/dwedit_board/viewtopic.php?pid=1750
    You might want to use this batchfile:
    Code:
    lztest in.gba out.gba
    copy /b m3decompress.bin + out.gba compressed.gba
    del out.gba
    del in.gba
    pause

    I bet if you compress a trimmed ROM you wouldn't save much of anything. You're better off just trimming.
