So i've had a Pi for a couple months now but i can't seem to get the image to work whatsoever on it. Can someone help a first time builder out?

My first problem was that I was trying to boot a RP3 only image on an RP3+. Did you copy the image properly to the card?

So far just step by step of what I have tried is to first write RetroPi onto the card, which has worked fine when the card is put into the the Pi. When I then try to write the Image to the card and it finishes, I put it into the Pi and boot it up, but all I get is the RetroPi Configuration upon startup. I have a RP3+ myself and the Image is WDG64, at least what it seemed to save and name itself as.

Silly question, have you tried a different card, sounds like it -could- be a fake card
