Hey all

I've tried to reach out to Retroarch and they've yet to get back to me. I've got an S20 ultra that I wanna use as an emualtion phone but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to make my SD card show up on Retroarch; any other emulators I use doesn't seem to have this issue.

Anyone know what's going on with retroarch?

Ty!

Uninstalled/reinstalled and it did ask permission but still I don't see any way to view my SD card via retroarch
Sorry, I should have suggested try that "nightly" version with the fix, it might not be implemented in the normal release yet from what I can tell (this might be the case since this fix is fairly recent.)

One: Using newer versions of RetroArch does not mean that it's exclusive to use new version of cores.
You can totally use older versions of RetroArch and download current cores.

Two: RetroArch on mobile is a bit funky. It won't show directories as a computer does. Intead it'll show something like: storage/internalSD
or
storage/externalSD

(or something along those lines, can't remember as I only used RA on mobile once)

So be sure that "externalSD" is actually showing up in your directories.
