Roms not working after moving LB....

Recommended Posts

I've moved my LB folder and my emulators folder to a SSD. I edited all my emultors new location. Now when I try to run a game it shows this. My roms are on a ext drive and I haven't touched them. So I presumed they're would be no probs but here I am....

Did you just add the SSD to the pc? Any chance maybe the drive letter for the external drive changed?

If you did not move the roms and updated the emulator paths correctly in Launchbox I would think the path for the rom would still match and you have no issue. Right click and edit a game and verify the path is correct. If it is, reselect the path anyway just to be sure and test that game. 

If you run the game directly in the emulator does it work?

No drives were added, I used a existing SSD.

If I edit a game and point it to the rom drive it works.

Weird thing is my Mame games still work! and they are on the same drive, strange.

Sussed it. For some reason after moving my LB folder the drive letter has disapeared from all my roms. The thought of deleting then re-importing 26,000 roms doesn't float my boat. Is there a less painfull way to get that drive letter back? anybody?

In the given Platform (not in a Playlist) select all games, then click Tools - Change ROMs Folder Path for Selected Games... and point to the directory where they're at.image.thumb.png.5531649cf9a9ac952f7641e2be00bcf4.png 

No re-import required.
