hi, so - long story short...my arcade worked but my HDD was really slow, taking ages to boot - like 5+ mins so I decided to upgrade to a SSD. I left the old HDD in there to store the roms as the SSD is mostly just used for OS and front ends/emus.
So to save me some time in reconfiguring I managed to copy Joytokey, Maximus and MAME to the SSD (from the old HDD) - great, now my PC boots super fast and goes into Maximus and then MAME. I went into the MA setup and re-directed all the links...fantastic, now the preview videos work...things looking good, however...
...now when I select a game I just get a beep - both from the select arcade button and the keyboard. I know the links are correct as inititally I just changed the drive letter and then I actually 'navigated' to the folder and I have set the file path to 'long'. So far no joy. I tried forcing a rescan, that took ages but eventually comes back with an error about the location of some files, now I haven't updated all my emus - I thought I'd start with MAME as I know that was working and the one we use the most and then sort the others.
So, any ideas? I'm at a loss. I assume have the roms on different HDDs is fine. I'm wondering if I have to start again but I hope not as it originally took ages to setup hence trying to migrate as much of the original setup to the SSD.
Anyway, thanks in advance for any help/advice
