    Hello, i have a problem saving games on the psx emulator.
    It wont save the games as the playstation games are opened on a fat32 usb drive.

    It wont let me save them because of permissions and you cannot set linux permissions on a fat32 usb drive.

    I just wondered if anyone else has had this issue and know a workaround.
    using the fat32 usb drive to store the games is handy as you can access it on windows.
    i dont want to format this usb to ext.

    i have also looked at the /etc/fstab file as this seems to be a workaround, but i have no idea how to configure it with retropi.

    anyone have anyideas?

    Hey there,

    I am looking for the exact same solution. Any help is very welcome. I’ve got this problem not only with the PSX roms, also with SNES.

    I have already added the following to my retroarch.cfg file.

    I am using my 16GB SD card with NOOBS (Openelec & Retropie) on my RPi2. I have copied all my roms onto my fat32 USB stick to safe some space on my SD card.

    Is there a chance to active saving/loading here? Or can I change the path where the savee games can be located? It would be ok to have them on the SD card if necessary.

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,
    MrBrsnes

    EDIT: I’ve found this: – So I’ll give it a try later and let you all know.

    Try this:

    sudo nano /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf

    Find the line:

    FS_MOUNTOPTIONS=""

    Change it to:

    FS_MOUNTOPTIONS="-fstype=vfat,flush,gid=plugdev,dmask=0007,fmask=0117"

    Let me know the result.

    i’ve used the following link to setup roms on USB.

    It seems to work….. the only issue I am having is scraping gambits within rom directory using Floob’s method.

    Need to scrape in original rom directory…. then copy everything across.
