    New to Retropie and downloaded the newest image. I have configured everything and then i do the system restart to pull the ROMs in form USB the system goes in to a restart loop. Retropie splash screen in to the Emulation station loading screen then errors out and repeats. Only way to do anything is to re-image the SD card. No matter what i do the error continues to occur.

    The USB has the folder retropie and the device fomrated the folders and the auto USB feature is enabled.

    Any ideas?

    Is there anyway just to put the roms on the SD card? Im trying to get this set up for my son for Xmas. Have held off giving it to him because I dont want to give him something he cant play with right now.

    You can do it over the network, or with the cp command from the usb, make sure its formatted to fat32 first.
