    SNES9xGX Unable to find USB

    Hi,

    There seems to be several threads about this issue but I still can't find a solution to my problem. I have formatted in W7 so I have 2 partitions. One is Active and Primary WBFS, and the other is a smaller exFAT. I have added my ROMS to the exFAT partition in a "ROMS/SNES" folder. Loading the emu via HBC or a forwarder still has the same problem, "USB drive not found".

    My drive is a 320gb WD Essential passport and I'm running 4.1.5 SNES9XGX.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Did you mark the FAT32 drive as active as well?

    Not sure if I did actually. I'll check it later.

    I've just checked and there isn't an option to make the exFAT partition Active. I only get that on the WBFS partition. Should the exFAT be set to active?

    iirc correctly, you need to change the active partition to be the fat partition, but the fat partition must be the second partition on the drive, leaving the wbfs as the first drive but not the active drive, but the whole drive has to have been formatted as a primary partition.

    It's all to do with how windows recognises the boot drive of a system hard disk, windoze was never the easiest of OSs to get your head round completely.

    I reformatted the drive last night, I still left the WBFS as Active and primary though. Strange thing is, I can run the SNES emulator from the USB drive but it won't load any roms?? I'll re-format it as you suggested and see if that help.
