    hardware: pi 2
    software: retropie v. 3.6

    iv’e tried to get my retropie to copy over the rom folders to my usb. I made sure to format my usb to fat 32 and i have an empty folder in the drive called retropie. I plugged it into my raspi and it didnt copy over the files ive tried this with 2 different usb same thing happened (kingston 4gb and kingston 8gb). idk what to do anymore somebody please help.


    what is the output of “tail /var/log/syslog” after plugging in the usb stick ?

    Please double check you formatted as fat32, and not exFAT. Also please make sure the folder name is all lowercase.


    Also try enabling usbromservice from the RetroPie setup script


    also, what are you wanting to do?
    run roms from usb?
    transfer roms from usb to pi-SD card?


    im trying to transfer the roms over to the sd card. ive double checked that they’re formatted as fat 32 and the folder is all lowercase still no dice. Also how do i find the output of “tail /var/log/syslog?


    turns out i had a defective image so i just got retropie on another sd card and im good to go thanks for all of your help guys!
