Thanks for the reply, im sorry but I mixed up the name, I am actually using Minitool partition wizard. Im also using SD card formatter and tried both Etcher and Winimage.
If someone can tell me if im doing this wrong as I just treid it again on my laptop with a brand new microsd and got the same issue.
I format the microsd using SD card formatter and have an empty FAT32 32GB micro. (Kingston Brand)
I then write the Arcaded Mini 1.2 image to it using either etcher or Winimage (which completes succesfully)
In Minitool partition wizard I see 5 partitions: (unallocated), G:rootfs, Linux Swap, I:FAT32 and the remaiing unallocated space (25GB or so). In my windows explorer I can see G: and I: but cannot access either of them, it says it must be formatted. So I cant add any games or resize the drive.
When I had the older image I did exactly the above and had the same result but also had a drive I could access (even had a handlheld device as an icon) wherer I believe i could put my roms in. I was also able to resize the drive to easily.
am I doing the process wrong?, or am i missing something at all?. Thanks.
