Swapping Disks

By default, when loaded through a .m3u file, lr-px68k places the first disk listed in Drive 0, and the second disk listed in Drive 1.

To swap either drive, press F12 to access the PX68k menu, then select your drive. You'll then need to navigate to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/x68000 and select the disk you want to use.
