    My advice is to get the paid ROM manager of the market and download the rom right to your phone:D

    My suggest is not to do that. Delete your emulator and reinstall it again.

    Btw, which emulator are we talking about? It may be just a dodgy BIOS file.

    And you're getting ROMs for games you actually own and not downloading them illegally from the internet?

    Since the latter is against forum rules, and against the law.

    Which Emus are you using?

    Also be sure the ROMs you got are good and work.

    OP did not say anything regarding download roms or obtaining roms illegally, so I am willing to give me the benefit of the doubt.

    But yeah, we need more information about whatever emulator you are using.

    after reviewing all the phone emulators i encountered by accident to
    the best testing tool of all.

    it's called the perfectomobile handset cloud and you can really operate the phone
    keys, touch-screen, or QWERTY keyboard to control the device, install
    applications on the device and verify that your

    application or service works properly and displays correctly on the
    phone
