ok, didn't see the option to install to external storage (later read: the gcw doesn't always mount the SD card successfully first time around) so i ended up choosing to install from internal storage, it worked and the games ran fine. then decided to try and re-install everything and see if i can get the external storage working this time around. so i deleted everything, the dir, and xmame file in the gmenu2x, etc.
but right now whenever i try to transfer the xmame_1.0.opk file to either apps folder (internal/external) via ftp it immediately starts trying to transfer roms from my desktop instead and get this error: "Folder not found! /media/data/local/share/xmame/xmame84/roms/" like its trying to transfer to the folders i'd deleted
any ideas to resolve this? right now the opk file just doesn't want to transfer
