So trying to start up the emulator. Im at the point where you start it and mess with your memory cards.

"* Step 8: Setting Up Memory Cards
------------------------------------------
1) Run PCSX2.exe and goto Config/Memcards
2) Make sure that Memory Card 1 is set to the file Mcd001.ps2 and Memory Card 2 is set to file Mcd002.ps2 are set (this is done by default, so you don't have to do anything)

*We now need to format the Memory Cards, just like with the real PS2!*

3) Go back to the plugins config menu and set your CD Plugin to "CDVDnull Driver 0.6.0" (you don't need to configure anything)
4) Now goto File/ Run CD/DVD"

Step four is where it is failing for me. Two images:

Now after some digging around I saw that my system fill did not have an extension on it, even after showing extensions from the folder options. It was merely labeled "system". I tried to give it an extension to no avail.

As for where it stops every time, I start up the program following your instructions precisely and it starts up as if I am playing the playstation and stops before I get to any choice.

My system BIOS:

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB
Windows XP
2GB RAM
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz ( 4 CPUs).

If there is any additional information I should provide just ask. Thanks.

The problem could be that you are running the Gsdx graphics plugin. I remember Pcsx2 crashing on me as well when I tried to run the BIOS with that plugin.

Try switching to the ZeroGS plugin while keeping the null CD driver of course and then go to run -> CD/DVD again.

I can't see your second picture, so I'm guessing what your problem is..
-Are you stuck in the BIOS screen, which tells you to insert a ps2 disc? > configure CDVD correctly.
-Does pcsx2 crash, and you have a line in the console that tells you "error: system.cnf not found"? > configure CDVD correctly.

If none of those, up a new screenshot that shows the console and error message you get when pcsx2 "fails".

Ok, getting the picture..
So you have a folder on your hdd, where you copied all the ff12 files into?
That's not how this works :p

You need to either play the game directly from the disc, using the cdvd gigaherz plugin for example.
Or you create an image of your disc (a .iso file) with a tool like imgburn, and use this image with the "Linuz ISO cdvd" plugin.
