    I would like to install Retropie but I have problem when I try to flash the SD Card. I download the img file (I have tried Direct Download and Torrent) and I install it in a formated Fat32 SD Card. I used Ubuntu and dd command. When the process is finished, the PC and the Raspberry couldn´t read the SD Card.

    Could enyone help me?

    Hey There,
    are you copying over the file, or are your using a program called or like Win32DiskImager? I use that program and it works every time 🙂 It writes the .img file to the card, and all you should be able to see when you insert it into a PC/Mac is the Boot folder (it contains a config.txt file which has the over-clock settings etc).

    Any Questions, Please Ask!
