What is this thread ?

2 exact same thread?

Being a member for more than 3 years & an "RD" why are you creating 2 threads for same exact purpose in same section?

I really can't understand the purpose..

If I'm wrong.. then sorry... but seems almost similar threads...

Well just my 2 cents..

Steps are a bit different for SkyDrive, when sharing a file link instead of an image.

I wish more people would do this instead of hosting on some hosting websites. After I try to download a couple roms the random website will slow my download speeds to 50 kb/s. If you ever try to download a 300MB rom on that dl speed. It is miserable. haha. But thanks for this.
