Try putting single quote marks around the directory path:

Re: Windows Emulator on Pi

I've had the best results on SNES emulation using PocketSnes, which is the SNES emulator included with RetroArch. If I were you, I would try installing RetroArch as the SNES emulator is good, and it includes emulators for other systems, which you can to install or not as you want.

Re: Sd-card get small after imagewriting

There are two things going on here: 1. The pi image expands onto the SD card as TWO partitions. Windows will probably only be able to see the first, smaller, partition that contains the boot information. This contains the config.txt file and the partition is only about 55 - 90 mb big. 2. The second,...

Re: how to transfer a SD-8g to a SD_4g,only used 3g space

Use gparted to resize the partition so that it's only 4gb in size. Then use dd to write the image to a file. Then use dd again to write the image to the 4gb SD card.

This is for linux. I don't know how you'd do it in Windows, I don't use it.
