You tried checking the contents of the disc using "My computer" ? If you can access the contents through that then there must be some problem with your setting and not your dvdrom/burner.
Post the exact settings that you are using and also information about system specs. Check the readme and help file if you are using epsxe for the first time.
well if it doesnt show up in windows explorer your SOL, have you tried it in a different drive? tried flashing new firmware? this may sound stupid but have you restarted your computer? are all PSX discs not recognized? it's an original PSX game right?
I just got Final Fantasy VII working but I still can't get 8 working although I know it used to. It reads the drive that final fantasy 8 is in as a cd-rom. Is there a Fix for this it also gives me a funny error.
