    is it possible to trim Game boy Colour, Wonderswan, Snes or Genesis roms?

    if any of these can, could someone recommend me the tools to do so? (preferably with a windows gui)

    I don't remember there ever being a trimmer for the SNES/Megadrive. None of the tools I use for my Super UFO have trimmers built into them, and when I had the ProFighter Duo (sigh, I do miss that copier!) there were no Megadrive tools for trimming either.

    thanks for the responses.

    It just seems likely that there is useless data at the end of many roms that could be trimmed, because surely not all games have the exact same size data as the cartridge - ie. 4begabytes, 2megabytes.

    You could always use a hex editor OSW.
