    Ok, so I'm so excited to get into Wii Emulation, I installed the Homebrew Channel and got the SNES9XGX emulator working.

    My problem is loading roms, I have set the folders exactly how it explains /snes9xgx/roms but everytime I load the emulator up, the first thing that pops up is a messege that reads "Error opening directory!" They are all workimg smc rom files, I have tested them on my computer. Can anyone please help me, this is annoying, I've been trying to get this thing to work all day long.

    Does your SD card have the lock on, (you know the little switch on the side)

    It has a lock, but I just checked, it is unlocked. I have no idea why it's not working, it keeps displaying that messege no matter what.

    I already did that. I went to Saving and Loading and selected it load from /snes9xgx/roms and it still comes up with the same messege. It won't even let me select the folder, it just keeps coming up with these letters like "yyyyy".

    It's a common mistake: where did you put the /snes9xgx/roms directory ?

    huh ? what folder ? i thought you got an error message when opening the ROM brower ?
    never saw that "letters" before, please write the exact message and explain where you get it: in a message box ? in the ROMbrowser ?
