    You need to create the directory, as the program doesn't do it for you. You would go to - /var/root/Media - and then in there you would create a folder called "ROMs" just like that. Inside that folder you will create another folder "NES" just like that. So you would put your ".nes" rom files in the directory that goes like this " /var/root/Media/ROMs/NES ". Hope that helps.

    What is iBricker? I have never heard of it. I don't know why more people don't know about WinSCP. Look that up in google. You log into your ipod in the same way. This will have those directories (should have at least).

    What is it that you are trying to do? Find NES roms or put them on the ipod? You don't need a specific program to install them on the ipod, you would use the same program you used to get any other app on the ipod, which is the one I mentioned above. That seems to be the best as I have had no problems with it. You just enter in your IP, then your name and pass and you are in.

    Then you look for that location I told you about and you create those two folders and then you drop the roms in that last folder. In order to find VAR you have to be at the root of the ipod, if you aren't at the root, then all you will see are like 1 or 3 folders, if you are at the root, you should see about 6-10 (in which you see var and follow the directory I gave you and create those two folders exactly as stated above). Then once they are uploaded, you just go on your touch and open up the NES Emulator and they should show right up!

    Uh... I don't know. It's worth a try, it won't hurt. So inside that folder you would create the folders I told you earlier, then put the rom in those new folders. If you can't find them when you open the NES app, then just delete the first new folder you added. I'm not on my WinMachine now so I don't remember... I did mine on my Mac, but I'm assuming it's about the same.
