Trouble installing roms
#1
Hello,
I just finished my Zero build and have run into an issue installing roms. I have experience using retropie and used the same method I've used for years but the system keeps bricking. I plug the USB drive into the slot on the Pi and try to let it do its thing. After a little while the screen freezes and no buttons respond, not even holding the power button for any period of time, I have to unplug the batteries to reboot. I have tried it twice. The first time it got through all 500+ gameboy games and 5 GBA games, the second time it added 9 GBA games and that's it. The USB drive I'm using is the same one I use on all my retropie builds without issue. Any ideas? 

Thanks,
Shane

Something I'm going to try in the meantime: the GBA roms I have are the only ones on my USB that are in .zip compressed files. They have worked fine without issue in previous retropie builds, but just as something to try I am going to put them on the USB as regular rom files.

Update just in case there is someone out there that comes across the same issue: This was the solution!
