    Where do I transfer my genesis games? I don’t see anything in the file system that says ‘Genesis’. I see every other sega system though lol.

    They go here:
    /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/megadrive

    The MegaDrive is called Genesis in North America, but MegaDrive everywhere else.

    Thanks Floob! Got the controller to work with button layouts but it’s just flashing now and not detecting. Any ideas on that?

    This one. Though I just ordered a snes usb controller and it worked no problem. Don’t know why it didn’t work though…I tried everything.

    Hmm, that should work out of the box – I know my 3rd party xbox wired controller did.
    You could use the RetroPie setup and install the xbox driver (at the bottom of the setup menu I think) and try again.
