    Those normally come with documentation that tell you where the roms should be stored especially MAME if not though it should create folders for you so for MAME look for a Roms or rom folder and that should be where all the roms get dropped

    SNES??? that could be tons of different emulators for android but normally with Console emulators you can store the games in almost any location and use the emulator to find that folder to load your roms

    EDIT MAME4Droid

    /sdcard/MAME4droid/roms

    that is the path for MAME roms

    The SNES one I would need more info to look that up

    Thank you very much for the reply, i cant figure out how to Edit mame4droid as you are describing and where and how to use the path you are saying...sorry for being such nonesence, for me to use MAME4droid is just fine....if icould load the roms to it! It would be great if you could be a bit more detailed about it...or just forgive my not understanding!

    /sdcard/MAME4droid/roms

    The above are folders

    roms is inside the MAME4droid folder and the MAME4droid folder is inside the sdcard folder, that is what we call a path
