Ok so I just recently discovered that I could make my own retro arcade, how cool is that. Problem is I am not extrememely technically inclined, I figure I am above normal when it comes to this stuff but have aloooooot to learn.
I have my new raspberry pi B+ and a class 10 32 mb micro sd card. I have tried several times to image the card with several different versions of RetroPie.
I tried v2.3 first. This booted up past the retropie project screen and stopped at the configure your controller screen/hit f4 to cancel. I found that I was getting no response from my wireless keyboard as the usb and ethernet ports appeared not to be active. The red light was solid on the pie and the green light shutoff after about 5 seconds after initial power up. I tried formatting and re imaging several times with the same results about 5 times.
After alot of searching I found one other post which sounded similar to this and they updated to v2.6.0.
I downloaded v 2.6.0 and tried again. I formatted the micro sd card and imaged it with 2.6.0. plugged in the pi and bam….nothing, no boot tv screen just says no data. Tried connecting via putty and nothing there on the ethernet port again. This time both the green and red lights on the pi are solid. This result has been the same for 4 attempts now.
I did download and install rasbian just for fun to make sure everything works and it did. I was able to connect on putty and use the usb/ethernet ports so I know the pi works.
Please help and bear in mind I am not extrememly savy, the cut and paste of the code is awesome by the way.
