I'm having the same issue, and I believe they're in the right place: MAME roms in the /arcade folder (that is, a folder named 'arcade' in the root folder of the drive). I've also noticed that the configuration isn't being saved to the drive.

Has anybody successfully formatted a VFAT flash drive on Ubuntu or macOS X and subsequently used it with this image?

That's indeed the right place.

I'm using mkfs.vfat. Do you have any other USB devices plug to the raspberry pi ?

Thanks for your help !

It's working now. I changed a few things in my approach, so I'm not sure what did the trick:

  • Used an 8GB flash drive instead of a 16GB
  • Wiped out all existing partitions and set it up as a one-DOS-partition drive

It looks and runs great!

Now, I do have another question: Is it possible to install shaders?

Nevermind.

They may already be in the image, but I cloned the repo at https://github.com/RetroPie/common-shaders onto the USB flash drive and used shaders from there.

Yay! My vertical barter bartop is almost ready for an enclosure!

For sure it's the partitions, I assume there is only one partition and one USB drive plugged.

Nice for the shaders, it is not something I use so it is not on the priority list, glad you found a workaround.
