    As I know, you only need to put NSP or XCI on root of external device. But are possible to launch emulator? Would be nice to have all roms on it, instead of SDcard.

    Why not just have your roms on the hard drive and retroarch installed on the SD? You can remap the rom location.

    Oh I didn't think of that, now you mention it you can remap location of roms. But I wonder if it is possible to map it to external device. Guess I have to try it out than :)

    Not working, I tried to launch roms from external HDD but Retroarch can't seems to find it. Hope they will release a support for that. Would be awesome to have whole collection on a HDD.
