I cant drag some games to their folders



  • Hi !

    While copying my roms by draging them to their folders i noticed there are some games wont copy, it shows X mark.

    also some games that did move to the folder they dont start.. for example Akumajou Dracula X (Rondo of Blood) on the PCECD it did show up on the list (with many other games) but when i click them the screen turn black for 5 seconds then im back to recalbox front

    Any idea how to fix this?
    Thank you.



  • Hi @OrochiMishima

    This is two topics/problems in one thread. Regarding your game, that doesn't start. You need to have the game as iso, or bin with a cue sheet and make sure, that the INSIDE the cue sheet, the correct filename is stated for the game. (CUE Sheet are just text files - thanks to @subs for this tip)

    For the other problem. What are you trying to copy and on what system are you? PC, MAC, Linux? Pi2, PI3? Can you post a screenshot of the error you'Re getting, because I'm not aware of any error called "X" ๐Ÿ˜‰



  • All files/extensions are not supported.
    So if the manager refuses them, mosy chances that they can't be used

    Hi ! @Nachtgarm
    I'm on PC and copying my files to my Ri3B via explorer, both of my PC and the Pi are connected to the modem via Wifi

    I checked the game names, the ISO file and the CUE and made sure that the iso filename inside the cue file is exactly the same but still doesn't work

    what i meant by the X is when you copy many files, the ones that got copied the recalbox will show u a check mark when the upload is finished but the ones that it refuses it will show an X mark indicating that this file is denied

    @subs The PCECD game i mentioned had 2 files iso and cue, same goes for the psx games that didn't copy

    @OrochiMishima PCECD does need a bios file... Did you add it? Check also that extension inside de CUE file is written with lower case ( rename .BIN to .bin).

    Are you on Windows? Using WinSCP ist a better alternative to tranfer roms via network. Look in the wiki if you don't know how to use it. Usually all cd systems have very large roms and those can"t be transfer through the web uploader.

    @paradadf Yea the BIOS is there and like i said the names are exactly the same
    I'm on windows yes, i'll try WinSCP and see what happens ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you.



  • @OrochiMishima, @paradadf mentioned, that you can't copy very large files through the web interface of recalbox, which is right, but why don't you just go to "Network Places/recalbox /share/roms/" and do it with the explorer, instead of the browser? Or you could just enter \\RECALBOX\share into the address bar of your explorer.

    So you can avoid WinSCP, but of course it's the prerred tool of choice, but when you use it, make sure the file transfer options are set to binary and not standard.



  • That's \\recalbox\share ๐Ÿ˜‰



  • @subs I did write \\ but I had to write it thrice, instead of twice to have it shown as \\
    Markdown doesn't like me ๐Ÿ˜‰



  • @Nachtgarm you have no apologies and will be whipped naked on a public place ๐Ÿ˜› and that will purify that soul of yours that plays FFVII on NES ๐Ÿ˜› lol



  • @subs You always know, what I need. Love ya, Bro!

    Topic solved and closed ๐Ÿ˜‰
