I have read countless tutorials but nothing is better than a video tutorial and if someone has found one please send me the link (please do NOT send me a written tutorial i have read millions of those and they are too complicated for me) any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

... What part don't you understand? You put .gb or .gbc ROMs on the player and you start them.

Quote:
This plugin is a port of GNUboy to Rockbox which allows you to play Gameboy games on your player. It is included in the Rockbox builds and functions as a viewer (you simply select the .gb or .gbc files to launch them). It does not show up in the "Browse Plugins" list. If you have any .sgb ROM files, you must rename them to .gb in order for them to work.

If you don't understand that, you probably shouldn't be using Rockbox at all.

If you're not intelligent enough to follow the idiot-proof tutorial Herefornow posted, please just forget about the whole thing...

Quote:
Step 3: Once connected, go to the Start menu on your PC. Go to Start > My Computer. Under 'Other Devices', double left-click the one that says 'Sansa e200'. With the files visible, create a new folder called 'Game Boy', or any other name you wish. You may want to create two folders, one called 'Game Boy' and the other called 'Game Boy Color' if you wish to keep the two types separate.

I'm amazed tutorials even exist. The manual description is like 2 sentences long because thats all there is. You copy the file over and then you play the file in rockbox like every other file type rockbox plays. Not sure how you could spend more then 20 or 30 words on that.

You didn't properly update Rockbox then. Redownload Rockbox and try again.
