  • Hi

    I'm afraid I am new to all this so please bare with me.

    Pi Model or other hardware: 3 B+
    RetroPie Version Used (eg 3.6, 3.8.1, 4.1 - do not write latest): 4.4
    Built From: Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website (
    USB Devices connected: San Disk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive 16GB

    I have been following many of the guides online for transferring ROMs to get working Emulation Station. I have made sure the format of the USB is FAT32 and have created a folder called 'retropie' however once plugging into my pi, nothing happens. I then found a guide that said to enable USB ROM service however this option appears to be missing from the RetroPie Setup>Configuration/tools.

    I have also attempted to update RetroPie and the RetroPie-Setup script but that has not helped either.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated.


  • Got it working, should have explored the set up more to see I needed to install the USB ROM service.
