Preparation

  • Clone SD card: The SD cards that come with these devices are unbranded, low quality and prone to failure. The suggestion is to always replace them as soon as you receive the device. For instructions on how to clone your SD card, see here. I would highly suggest doing so before following this guide.

How to add games on Stock firmware

There’s two different ways to add games to your Anbernic RG Arc. It all depends on if you’re using one SD card or two SD cards.

If you have one SD card, your games will be on the GAMES partition when you connected your SD card to your PC using a branded SD card reader.

Pretty self explanatory at this point, but you just need to move your ROMs into the right system folder and that’s it. Once you insert the SD card back into the device and turn it on, you’ll see your new games.

Two Card Setup

If you have two SD cards, your ROMs are located on your second SD card.

If you connect that SD card to your PC using a branded SD card reader (recommendations above), you’ll see a list of folders with system names. For example – in the gba folder, that’s where you would put your GBA roms.

Pretty self explanatory at this point, but you just need to move your ROMs into the right system folder and that’s it. Once you insert the SD card back into the device and turn it on, you’ll see your new games.
