I have a question about a USB thumb drive. Initially I followed the tutorial “How to run from USB (the best method)” and i have no issues with this thumbdrive, boots up and all is fine.
Now, I want to run retropie from sd card but this time move only my roms to USB. My issue is, after i boot up and exit emulation station, my drive is not mounted to /media/usb*. I edited the fstab file and added the UUID and still doesnt mount, only manually.
I run ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/ and I see the drive. I can also mount it no problem and then everything works. Can anyone point me in the right direction? maybe I need to put a delay somewhere?
The 64gb thumb drive is formatted fat32. Does this matter? Any ideas?

Thanks for the link. I went ahead and tried that tutorial. Same outcome. Basically, I have to manually mount thumb drive (sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb) to even see my drive.
I go back to emulationstation and for example psx is there. I reboot, its gone, i exit (F4), mount the drive, go back to emulationstation and psx is there again.
Long story short, automount doesnt work for me.
When I manually mount it and ls /media/usb* I notice it is mounted at usb and at usb0. If this helps.

Hi I am sorry, I’m not very experienced with this and can only advise you to do what I would do.
I would re-format the USB and then start the tutorial again from scratch, sometimes I miss the simpilest detail.
In any case I am sure someone will chime in with some more advice or hopefully a fix.thatguyinflParticipant06/09/2015 at 15:01Post count: 39
Thanks will do. Much appreciated. This happens even with a fresh install. I can write the image to sd card, without changing anything, I have to manually mount my thumb drive.
I tried multiple thumb drives same result. I will keep researching. Thanks again.

After much reading, found the answer. it was a delay that was needed.
For anyone else who runs into this problem.
sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt
elevator=deadline rootwait rootdelay=5
