How To Build Your Own SNES Classic Emulator

Loading ROMs onto your USB stick
The easiest way to load ROMs from your computer onto the Raspberry Pi is with a USB stick. We want to reiterate to you that we do not condone piracy in any way and would like to remind you that you should purchase legitimate copies of any games you intend to download ROMs for.
With that out of the way, insert the USB stick into your computer and create a folder called “retropie”. Now take it out of your computer and plug it into the Rasberry Pi and give it a few seconds for the system to create directories within the folder you just created.
Once this process is complete, unplug the USB stick from the Pi and plug it back into your computer. From here, you’ll notice that it has created a ROMs folder and an SNES directory within that folder. You can drag any unzipped, legal SNES ROMs you may have downloaded into this folder.
