    IS there any issue of playing trimmed roms on the Gateway?

    i dunno the rom tool one that everyone's using, wasnt aware that there was another trimmer.

    but anyways, if there are, any trimmer should work. All it does is delete garbage data

    - The Gateway only supports one rom on a sd card
    - Most -if not all- roms will fit on a 8Gb or even 4Gb card
    - Storage of roms on a harddisk is even cheaper and all current EU roms + the US+JP roms which are not released in EU all fit on a couple of hunderd GB
    - trimming could break a game

    so why even bother trimming a rom?

    2gb> games take a VERY long time to write to MSD cards.

    I'm writing one as we speak; taking around 2 hours so far.

    I can see how trimming can be good. Also, it'd take up less space on your hard drive.

    That's completely different. I can transfer things like that over very fast in comparison. It's the application used to write roms to the gateway cart.

    I used the Gateway recommended app and it took me like 3 minutes to write a 2GB ROM onto an 8GB Class 4 card.

    It took me less than 5 minutes to write a 4GB ROM onto a 8GB Class 4 card, with the recommended Win32 Disk Imager app. You must have a faulty SD card reader or a prehistoric age PC (no offense intended).

    Try using another card reader and/or closing all background programs when using Win32 Disk Imager.

    To actually answer your question, yes, people have experienced issues playing trimmed ROMs with Gateway, but since Gateway hasn't been out for long and hasn't been well-documented, we don't know whether those people just had bad writes, bad ROMs, bad flashcarts, dirty connections, etc. To quote Gateway's website:
