I renamed a bunch of roms on my local computer and was going to upload all of them from scratch again so everything would be alphabetical, etc. on the A-320.

Before doing that, I deleted all the files in the GAMES folder which I thought were just roms.  I guess not?

I left the only folder that was there which is something like CPS1.  There were no other folders in that folder before then as far as I recall.

Now when I boot up and go to the "interesting games" option, there are no games listed at all -- only that CPS1 folder.  If I use the built in file browser, I can see all the roms are there.

How do I get the system to refresh/recognize the roms?

I tried downloading the NES.SIM emulator I found on someone's site here and that didn't seem to do anything (or I did it wrong).

I tried to set it to default settings in the System/setup menu and that didn't do anything.

Any advice?  Thanks!

Yes, there were more than roms in GAMES folder, you deleted all the emulators.

Download them from here: http://web.archive.org/web/20100918182630/http://dingoowiki.com/index.php?title=Dingoo:Emulators

Extract them and put all the .SIM files in GAMES folder. If you can't select any rom, then go to Music, then select "Update Jukebox" and try again after it finishes updating.

Worked like a charm - thanks!!

I had to do both steps to get some of them to appear.  The "Update Jukebox" was the refresh I figured had to exist somewhere, I just couldn't find it  :)
