    How to replicate the problem: The issues is, when I am playing a game, for example FF VII, when it asks me to switch disks I hit the Select Triangle, go to the disk options, there it only says Disk 1, I cannot get it to show any others, I went to the 3rd option under the disk tray, there I go to look for the roms, I get to the psx folder and it is not there, none of the disks are listed there to add them. What can I do? Sorry this is confusing really trying to learn.



  • Yes, I did search this and other websites. So far I have loved this, and still do. I just need to know what I am doing wrong. Thank you for any assistance.



  • @pushtar give me a minute to get to my pc to give you the answer. If you use psx eboots you wouldnt have this issue. Also you dont have to rename the gamesaves with psx eboots.



  • @pushtar open up the file /opt/retropie/configs/psx/retroarch.cfgand add this above the #include.... line

    rgui_browser_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx/
    

    now when you go into the retroarch gui and got to change discs, eject and then choose the disc from since the directory goes straight to the psx roms and actually finds them.



  • Another option is to convert the multiple disks into a single file with PSX2PSP. See https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/Playstation-1



  • Thank you all. The help is really appreciated.
