    make a rom folder in your mame folder on the root of your sd card. then put your roms zipped in there.

    also read your "config.txt" on your SD card it will tell you the path and proper names the emulator is looking for .

    Are you running mame from the same SD or USB?

    http://code.google.c.../downloads/list use this one from Blizzo to play Neo Geo games ,, it works great from sd ,, You can get a great forwarder from Mastershoes thread that will work great with it from your sd card as well.
    both tested by me .

    I am having the same issue as the original OP. The games I have in my folder are MK and MK 2. Both are zipped files. Help!! I would prefer to run from USB but right now I have the sdlmamewii folder in apps and mame on both the SD root. I have not done any mods to the ini file and really don't know what to do there anyways.
