    It looks like you may have only configured the controllers for emulation station and not necessarily the emulators themselves. Floob has some good tutorials on how to do this: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OBloKEbBRAU

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I have followed that video and in fact did do that (register the USB controller)

    The issues I get is I’m as the screen when it says please make sure only the USB controller is plugged in, I press enter on the OK then it goes straight to the window telling me the file has been saved it does not give me the window to press the button to config them.

    Before that window comes up I do see for a second the black window that I assume is the one to enter the button presses.

    Any ideas what I can do now, even tried it with no keyboard plugged in but of course I have no way to press enter not he OK

    When I configured it I used ssh to start the program and then once it told me to enter the keys I used the controller, even though it wasn’t showing on my TV screen what was happening on my computer it would still register the joypad buttons.

    You can also change the controls manually:

    sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    This shows an example of where to add the joypad configs:

    May need to do it manually as I SSH in with only the controller attached and it did the same again as soon as you hit OK, it goes to the next screen saying it was saved and does not let me config.

    Think I may also try a free install on a new card.

    Created a new card from scratch, this time did not update any software and it worked, now I was able to config the controller.

    This was a basic logitech controller I had, still can’t make it see my Neo Geo USB arcade stick. But the joypad is a start.

    Thanks for you help
