    I tried doing a save state, and it either said it could not do it, or the core does not support save states. I'm running ROMs from the microSD card, BTW.

    If you have marshmallow be sure to enable the permissions to access the storage in the emulator app settings

    I didn't explain well, I meant that for marshmallow you have to go in the settings of the phone, then in all the applications and now you should go in the emulator settings and enable that permission, but if I remember well that's only for mm sorry

    Try to save to the internal storage.
    When i try to do something on my sd with an app it fails but then on internal storage it works, maybe because it has some problem.

    With Nes.emu Free go in "options" then "system" then "save path", click on "set custom path" and choose a folder.
    With RetroArch go in the settings by clicking on the button below right of the screen.
    Here go in "Directory" and then in "Savefile Dir"or in "Savestate Dir", now you have to choose the new directory

    Thx! I had to choose the Save State and Save under Directory in RetroArch, not Download, but you were a HUGE help. Thx again!

    Yes sorry about that I edited the message before, but i think I did it after you read, I noticed the mistake too late.
    However I'm happy to have helped:)
