I’m new to the whole Pi thing and decided I wanted to tackle the retroPi project. I’m just curious why after transferring the RetroPi image to my to my SD card it only shows about 50mb of free usable space on the card in windows? I’ve tried it on a 4gb and a 16gb SD card and the result is the same. I was hoping to be able to just transfer all my roms onto the sd card through windows without having to do it remotely.
Aaron R, if you haven’t already figured it out, you are looking at the FAT32 boot partition. The actual RetroPie files are on an ext4 linux partition that Windows cannot see. You would have to plug your USB drive into a linux computer or press F4 when you are booted into the RetroPie and type startx at the command line to view the files.
