if there is no unallocated space showing then you may have to pop out the card and use a reader for that to show up...

usb issue exists in original firmware.
try to reboot retrogame and then plug in to pc again.

Steward I sent you a link regarding the Pap K3 games.

The first time I did it and since I was nervous I found splitting the two halves awkward. Mainly because I didn't want to break anything. Once you do it a few times then it's child's play.

Same for me, I was terrified it would break.

leave it connect by usb and reboot the device. Let it ask you again and again select usbdisk. Should show up in Windows explorer then.

That worked but like whack a mole one problem goes down another pops up immediately.

ROMs

618mb free of 714mb...

I extended roms to 22gb. Is there anything I can do?

Did you remember to hit "apply" in minitool when you enlarged the partition?



thanks :)

There was no expand option, I took it all apart and redid it. It's now been expanded thank you.

Now I am copying my rom folders now. They're named GBA, GB, SNES, SEGA, NES and PC Engine, do I need to give them special names like regba for the emulator to recognize them? The roms don't seem to be appearing on int_sd. Where do I find them?

Is there a linux/Mac tool to expand the partition size?

Edit: Looks like the built in disk utility on Mac is able to do it, I will try that.

since game folder is used for putting official games, so, I only keep 2GB for this purpose.
so, I will not recommend to put rom on this folder. (because usb function is still unstable)
but if you still want to mount it when plug usb, you can submit an issue to my github.
I will try to add it into next release.
thanks

before release this firmware, I have tried to test usb function many times.
even launching official usb_mount script or testing original firmware, it is still unstable.
in GMenu2X, it only does the following command to mount usb as disk:
  echo "/dev/mmcblk1p1" > /sys/devices/platform/musb_hdrc.0/gadget/gadget-lun1/file

so, maybe, you use another usb cable or via usb hub.
any suggestions are very welcome. :)
thanks
