    Can anyone give me step by step help on how to download roms, where to download them, how to get them on my phone and how to use Emulators. This was one of the main reasons I got the Droid over the Iphone but I have never figured it out.

    I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    For roms, Google is your friend.

    Mount your SD card and place roms in folders. Mine are called GBA, NES, Arcade etc.

    Install apps. (I recommend anything by Yongzh)

    Have fun

    You can just do everything straight from your droid, no mounting needed.

    Thats true. But for less tech saavy people or people brand new to android, doing it "the long way" might be easier to comprehend.:greendroid::greendroid::greendroid:

    But all you do is install emulator from market, go to a rom website and download a rom that fits the emulator you got, find it in astro, do your thing and it's done. Takes a minute lol

    Well thats the easy way for me, I never actually tried the mounting way, well I never really mounted my phone to much in general though so I can't say to much about it. I used it for getting a lot of itune songs but thats about it.
    It can pretty much do what a flashdrive does correct? Or am I wrong on any part?

    "Do your thing" isn't very good advice for someone wanting a step-by-step.

    Yeah, thats it exactly. It is actually dismounting the SD card in your Phone and mounting in your computer OS like you just plugged it into a card reader and physically plugged it in. Thats why if you mount your phone and try to acess your pictures, it will give you an error message.

    I use the mounting for music and large files mostly. I used it at first for emulators because I already had a collection of them, but now, I too typically just go to the web with dolphin and use astro to place them in my rom folder. It is easier.Sometimes I find the long way easier to understand at first, then I learn shortcuts, or easier ways. (like in math class, lol) Actually, I still suck in math.:tongue:
