    I’m not that well versed in Linux and when I start up my Pi, it goes straight to Emulationstation (although I can obviously press F4 to go back to the command screen). I want to start emulating PS1 and GBA games on my Pi, but I need a BIOS file. Is there any way I can I move it from a flash drive to where it needs to be?

    This may help explain how to get files on there, obviously you want the BIOS folder instead of the roms folder I mention. I probably need to expand on how the USB copying works.
