Hey my brother bought a pi (pretty sure it is a pi 1 B it has 4 USB ports) that came with an SD card preloaded with retropie all up and running and loaded with games.
I have used win32diskimager to create an image of the SD and successfully write it onto another SD card but it will not work in the pi. I get an error along the lines of library not found.
I managed to ethernet the pi to my modem and I can somewhat explore the structure of the rom files, I can successfully copy out roms of the original SD card and they are fine and intact, however I manually copied them from the new imaged SD card and noticed the rom files are all corrupt.
Any help or further troubleshooting tips greatly appreciated! I have ordered my own pi and just want to easily image what the first card already has going so well 🙂
It’s very strange, because I make backup of Retropie every change or new configuration done. I use win32 disk image and I never had problems. The SD Card doesn’t have corruption blocks before the backup?

chkdisk has come up clean so it remains a mystery and probably will forever. I have moved away now and ordered a pi for myself and will start fresh with smithers dual boot image I think. Thanks for all the help guys.
