Hello I am new to the PI and am trying to get a mame machine running.
I have downloaded the retropie 1.8.1 image and wrote the countenance to my 8G SD using Win32diskimager.
All seems to go well except.
My Pi boots up but I only see some emulators missing the only 1 I truly want mame.
The SD card ends up with 3 partitions
1 boot about 50M in size
2. partition *
Is this correct? I am assuming that the 2 partitions are Linx so that is why Windows can not read to them. (I also wonder why the first partition is so small) Can I expand it and use it like one big drive?
I am unsure how to proceeded from here. I have read all that I can and am at a loss.
Every guide shows that all should be there and then where to go next.
Thank you for your help
Obviously I am new to Linx but Dos and windows are my mainstay.
Thanks for the tip.
I was able to get a USB drive mounted and have populated the ROM folder.
It did work,
Thank you for the information.
Honestly I would not have thought about putting anything in the folder until I saw it come up.
Hope that this post will help someone in the future.
