hi, ive known about arcade punks for a while but its only recently that ive looked into it more as ive statred to make and arcade cabinate for my pc room. my main question is that when i download any of the NZB/Torrents i get an >img file which i fully understand is then written to an SD card to be used. when i try and mount it in windows to amend some fo the roms or add some/remove all i ever get is that the file is corrupt. is it the case that these .img file can only be mounted to an SD card?

Download the files, 

burn the image to a micro sd card > https://www.arcadepunks.com/knowledge-base/write-img-sd-card/

then you ftp your files over to the pi 

(possibly in some case you insert micro sd and the partition with roms shows so you can do that way – but easier to ftp over!)
