roms are usually only one file

depending what rom for what emulator its for depends what format the file is in

like the nes should be in .nes format

games for the psx, may have to have more than one file, a .bin and a .cue which is the audio track

Hey when you ask questions try not to be as vague as you possibly can. If you want some one to help you are going to have to mention what emulators your trying to run, what roms you are trying to use, what the file extension of the rom is. People canít even start to help you if you arenít making any sense.

Arcade (MAME) ROMs are several files meant to stay zipped.

NES, SNES, Genesis, and most other games only have one file.

PSX games usually have two: a .bin and .cue, which must have identical names (except the file extension).

I don't know if any other systems have multiple files, or not.

check the *.ini file in the emulator dir. that will tell you where the default rom dir is, you can also change where you want the rom dir to be.

pretty much all emus support zip archives, so you can leave the files zipped.
