There are only around 2800 different working games, the rest are clones of those. Did you use the fullset importer? Sounds like if you did you changed settings, what did you change? Could just be you imported thousands of roms that dont work, and therefore have no database ID or media.

Also since i have say 8000 games it says and i think it said 1600 couldnt find art and asked if i wanted to delete them , could they just be games that dont work or clones that i dont need and delete them?

Thats what i said in my reply, if you left the settings at default you would have around 2800 games imported, the fact that you say you have 8000 means you changed some of the settings, so i have no idea what you have imported, but likely non working games and bios files, which are simply not in our database.

They are not in the roms folder they are under retroarch , so can i delete the games that dont have art ?
