@XEntombmentX Ah shucks that happened to me the first time too.
For future reference, when done transferring files, right click the disk in the manager and select "Flush Cache to Disk" and then it's ok to remove the drive.
I should have mentioned that.
@mitu ahhhhh, I was waiting on the auto copy, it's formatted as ntfs, is that an issue?
You'll have to decide what format you have on the disc - is it ntfs or ext4 ?
Please use the documentation and follow the instructions - you have to choose one of the methods described there and take into account what filesystem you have.
@bc320 I'm with you on this. With such a versatile machine like the Pi (any model) you don't know what you'll be using it some years into the future. Furthermore, Retropie runs on Linux which uses free memory to buffer I/O operations to speed up file access etc. You can see the memory allocation with the command free -h.
I have been setting up my Pi2 for almost a year now and it's been quite a bumpy but rewarding ride. Bumpy because I'm not remotely tech-savy and know diddly-squat about Linux, but rewarding for the experience in itself: building the romsets, configuring emulators, choosing ES themes and now scraping roms... seeing it all come together as something that I could only dream of as a teenager is truly heartwarming.
Very soon it will be finally ready to simply plug and play! :)
@mitu Ok, so i will bought a 3.0 External HD to at least transfer the games as fast as possible from my PC to the HD. But i won't have any gain when RPI is readind the data on the HD, since RPI's port is 2.0 right? btw, there is no compatibility problem if the HD is 3.0 and the RPI is 2.0, right?
@herb_fargus Thanks for all your work. Everything was working before I update the script and everything. Maybe you could look into it some times? the USB feature is so great, especially with all the ISOs for the systems.
Maybe something must have broken the feature. It was working with the plain 4.2 image. (though, I had some issues at the boot up which said that it could not mount my hdd but it still showed all roms and mounted it properly).
