Can't add more roms after first package

Recommended Posts

So I didn't have trouble with the initial setup and exporting my first package over to my Android device. Since the time that I exported my first package, I have downloaded more roms that I now want to export to my device and add to the rest of my collection. The problem is that it's not working. I'll go through the same steps for exporting the roms to Android as I did the first time, but when I try to add them to the same location where I exported my first package and power up my device, the new roms won't show up. Any help is appreciated!

This is because the playlist file created by LaunchBox is replaced by the previous one exported to android.

The quickest way to export for a system with roms already is to create playlists per system an every time you export a new game to your phone you overwrite the existing playlist file. Doing this you can merge directories but neglect to overwrite the game files already there. 

Alternatively, you can manually merge the two playlist files by copying line by line from one file to another and organizing manually.
