    Hey folks just a quick question.

    Aside from transferring files over LAN, is there another way to transfer my ROMS over the my Pi 2? USB for instance?

    Cheers!

    Yes USB, put on a USB stick, mount the drive and then copy them over.

    Mounting is pretty easy, there are lots of guides showing how to do it:

    If you’re using the RetroPie Image, just plug in a USB-Stick. Then plug it into your Computer. There will be a “roms” folder on your stick, with a subfolder for each emulator. Then copy your roms in the folders and plug it into your pi. An automatic copy-job will copy the roms to the right folders. (just watch your usb-device-led to see when the job is done).
