    Okay so I followed the instructions to install the emulator. And when I start it with the Homebrew Channel I get an "Error loading directory" message and I'm unable to open any folders, when i try to, it sends me back to the media selection screen, (SD Card, USB Mass Storage, etc)
    When I try to put the roms on the root so I don't have to open any folders, it won't load them.
    Any help please?

    I have a similar problem. I already had snes9x. I just updated to 4.2.9 Now on some games the save state won't load. When I try to load it I get a message saying "file not in snes9x format" The only games that do this that I've noticed so far are Megaman X2, Megaman X3, and Super Mario RPG. Is there anyway to fix this?

    SD. I don't think it's my SD card though since it works for everything else.

    I think the problem is with the new version 4.2.9 I reinstalled version 4.2.8 (which I luckily had saved on my pc) and the save states worked just fine.

    I have SM 3.2. Could that be the problem?
