    Hi, I have installed RetroPie 2.6 (for RasPi 1) on a 16gb micro-sd card.

    My problem starts when I connect the USB stick (with NES, SNES, GBA and GBC ROMS placed in the correct folders) and the Emulator don’t appear in the main menu.

    Don’t know what to do next or if I need to install emulators manually. My only steps were: Install RetroPie on sd, expand filesystem, configure controller and place roms in the USB.

    Any ideas? Please, I’m a real dummie in Raspberry Pi :p

    Are you copying the ROMs from the USB stick to the internal microSD card? As far as I know, the Pi doesn’t read the ROMs directly from the USB stick.

    @tendonut: I don’t know (lol)… But, if I put the USB with Roms, RetroPie detect some of them (from the MAME folder, .zip file) as FinalBurnAlpha roms.

    @herbfargus Today I tried to connect raspberry via WiFi, but it seems that my raspi doesn’t have a IP addres, how can I know if my raspi is correctly connected?

    Type:
    ifconfig

    This will pull the information you need. look behind where it says inet addr and it will show your RPi’s ip address.

    Made, but I can’t finde the “inet addr” line. I made a screenshot to the “ifconfig” results.

    What brand of wifi dongle do you have connected to your PPi? Some aren’t compatible.

    Another question: Have you tried connecting your RPi to an ethernet connection and updated the software?

    My WiFi Dongle is TP-Link TL-WN823N

    And, didn’t try to connect it to ethernet, my router isn’t near a TV with HDMI ports.

    EDIT: FINALLY, connected the Raspi to ethernet, find the IP in the router connections, and send the ROMS via WinSCP. Now it’s working!!

    Thank u guys for all the help, definitely the best way to play old games!
