 +In most cases, using a second USB hard drive to host your ROMs separately from the Batocera system should be totally transparent when you [[storage_device|use the dedicated menu item]] to enable it. 
 +
 +However, when tinkering with the systems, things can go wrong. This page is here to help you troubleshoot and fix those cases.

 +Otherwise you can also choose the drive, where you want your ROM files to be located, directly in Batocera EmulationStation Menu, by going to ''System Settings'' and select the drive under ''Storage Device'' and then reboot. The file structure for the ROM files will then (during the reboot) be created automatically (if not already present) on this drive.
 +If you are using an external hard drive and it is not recognized correctly after doing this, then it might be, that your external hard drive needs more time to spin up, than the boot time of batocera is.
 +In those cases you have to edit the ''/boot/batocera-boot.conf'' file and add the line: ''sharewait=15'' (if it still does not work, try with a higher number like ''sharewait=20'' for example)
