Emulator not appearing in Retropie (ROMS added, Bios added, cfg file checked, etc)

I recently tried adding the 3DO and Colecovision emulators. I added them through the Retropie depository and they installed fine with no problems. I reset the machine. I added the BIOS's to the BIOS folder (with the correct names) and added ROMS to both the "Coleco" folder and "3do" folder (which were made by Retropie automatically).
When I reset the machine again, the emulators still didn't show up.
I checked the guides and made sure the "Parse Gamelist" was set to off. I then re-installed the emulators. I checked the "es_systems.cfg" file to make sure the emulators were in listed in the file. I noticed they were not listed so I added them manually. These are the lines I wrote:
<command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 SYS 3do %ROM%</command>
<extension>.zip .ZIP .col .COL</extension>
<command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 SYS colecovision %ROM%</command>
and still nothing. I've looked everywhere for an answer and can't find jack. If anyone has had this problem before and knows how to fix it, please let me know.

You could check in
/home/pi/.emulationstation. If you have an
es_systems.cfgfile in there you could add the system details to it so they show up or you could delete it so the default located in

They sold you retropie illegally https://retropie.org.uk/about/legal/ . You'll have to ask the seller for support as we have no idea what they have done to it.
