Where can I find new ROMS?

There are a lot of sites to download its ROMS. The question is to find the site that will offer you functional ROMS on Recalbox. To start, go for a ride on the following topic of the forum Recalbox which makes us a very complete summary of all the ROMS compatible on Recalbox and on the differents versions of Raspberry Pi (big thanks to them for the Taff!).

For me, the best solution is the search on Google. Otherwise here are some links that have been useful to me :

Use the following IDs to connect:

  • Login: Root
  • Password: Recalboxroot


Once connected to your RecalBox, go to the “share\roms” directory. This is where you will find all the consoles represented by a folder. As part of this tutorial we will inject two new ROMs for the SNES.


Copy to the root of the directory the ROMS that you have uploaded beforehand. Do not hesitate to read for each console, the file “_readme.txt” at the root which will tell you the extensions of the files accepted by the OS.


Restart your RecalBox and the tour is played …


Good game & have fun!
