[quote=100121]Ok are a few things here that makes the difference.
If you are on Windows I suggest you edit your file in your raspberry pi as you cannot see your file properly.
To edit your file under Rpi (linux) environment you can use this command:

sudo nano /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

Please note you must exit Retropie first in order to get your command prompt.

If you use linux in your desktop (Ubuntu ou other operating system) you can edit your file with other application like gedit but I’m affraid it’s not your case.

Because NANO has a very simple interface this link will help you in your find and replace journey:

http://artinpetrossian.com/?p=53

You will find lines as it follows

<path>~/Retropie/roms/EMULATORNAME</path> (something like this, I don’t have it in my mind right now as I’m outside my house)

And what you need to do is to replace this address to Your USB PEN Roms Directory.

Cheers!

ok thanks thats it sorted . and the info was spot on .

[quote=100120]Have you heard of Google? https://www.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/how-to-run-from-usb-the-best-method/#post-100012 indicates you wanted someone else to tell you everything (it was the first Google result if you had bothered).

re your latest “please tell me every single thing i should do” post..

/etc is a directory. Are you at a command line? have you tried “cd /etc” ?

Editors? There are many you can use.. you could try nano or vi…. but please find out how to use them yourself. There are many sites that can tell you the commands to load/save files and add/delete text.

I am not normally so unhelpful but you really do seem to be seeking a 100% spoon feeding without doing much yourself!!
