CHD games not working for Sega CD.
@Krytern The error I see is
[...] [libretro INFO] INFORMATION - Loading 0 bytes ... [ERROR] Failed to load content.
which means RetroArch cannot read the file or the
.chdfile is empty ?
How large is the
@mitu It is 317MB
@Krytern I wonder if it's because of the older version of RetroArch - is there a reason you haven't updated it ?
@Krytern The new log is not very different than the old one. Is there a way to check if the CHD is valid - maybe load RetroArch on your PC ?
I'll check one of my CHD on the Pi system I have, to see if there's some emulator related error, but I doubt it, there haven't been any major changes at all in the Libretro core in the last months.
@mitu Looks like it is a problem with the CHD file. I used CHDMAN from the wiki on this site and it didn't give any errors so it is strange I am having issues.
@Krytern Did you test it on the PC ? You can run
chdman -i info <chdfile>to see what CHD version is used.

I need to post the solution to this issue as it affected me as well:
If you have:
- Checked you have the correct BIOS files in the correct place.
- Checked you have the CHD files correctly created (i.e. install retroarch on your PC and run the CHD file in genesis-plus-gx - if it works, the file is OK).
But your Sega CD games are still not playing and just crashing back to game select screen after the runcommand screen. Then here's the answer:
Go into retropie setup and update all packages.
That's it. It's that simple. After that, your CHD games should work and you can save a huge amount of space on your sd card.

Looks like it is a problem with the CHD file.
sounds like you may not have converted it properly.
I downloaded Sonic CD to test ...
Firstly, you need to use CDmage (V1.02.1) to convert the 35 *.bin file tracks of Sonic CD into a single *.bin before you can use CHDMAN
after that you will have just 2 files ..
Sonic CD (USA).cue
Sonic CD (USA).bin --------- which is 587,601KB in size
after running CHDMAN
Sonic CD (USA).chd --------- 329,386KB
which is approx 12MB larger than your 317MB file
Tested it with my setup, and it works fine
