Cutscene video problems

On the whole I havn't had any real problems with ePSXe. Since installing it I've had no particular problems with particular games.

However, I have a general problem with video cutscenes for games, such as openings. Cutscenes appear extremely slow, with sound dragged out to compensate and the graphics seem washed out and watered down. In-Game graphics, sound and speed appear fine on the otherhand, just opening cutscenes I have this problem.
This occurs so far on all of my games, and those which uses "better" graphics for cutscenes, or openings, than usual in-game graphics. For example, Driver, Tomb Raider, Gran Turismo etc.

Here are my current Video settings:

I apologise if this is a usual problem and has been addressed before. I tried searching but sadly no luck in finding the fix for this.

Thank you in advance, sorry again if this has been addressed before. :)

An ISO is a binary copy of a CD, including not only the data contained on it, but also information about the logical estructure of the data on the CD, as there are a couple different ways to store data on a disc. Simply put, is a clone of the cd in a file. The point of using an ISO with your problem is that hard drives are many times faster than optical (CD, DVD) drives. If your problem is caused by a slow data transfer rate between cd and computer (pretty common with psx cds), this will solve it. Another possibility to save some hd space is to use PEOPS cd plugin, and configure it properly (namely, use ictl scsi command interface, thread read method in a WinXP box).
