    Does someone made a list which games are trimable on the G6?
    This would be cool because if all games are trimed its really usefull because it allows to add 3-4 more games.

    i think there is no need to trim all games, many of them has small space in the end of the rom

    i, for example, looked roms in fileviewer and then trimed roms with many "zeros" in the end (NSMB, Big Brain Academy, Tetris DS)
    also many roms can be trimmed after a time they released, when a new software for g6 is released...

    If only the 00's/FF's are removed from the end of the rom then it should work fine (try giving a few back if it fails), if it removes other 00's/FF's then we could be in for some issues although it is still a very viable method.
    For the record Silent Viper many many roms can be seriously trimmed this way (younjust picked some bad examples), for example the Japanese pokemon game can be halved (1024 to 468mbit) although that is an exception rather than the rule.
    As for internal trimming many roms have junk space (the US and Japan tetris DS have several megs of space at the end of the soundfile) and many more have junk to make for nice looking addresses which makes rom hacking easier but adds nicely to the space used.

    But yeah compatibility should and does go up with new software a Silent Viper said.

    Also if you are seriously interested in saving space KillerMiller take a look at the link in my signature about rom rips and enhancements.
