I use version 1.4.0

I used the Wizard guide to configure the emulator and everything seems to work. But when I use the "Run CD-ROM" command all I get is a black picture.

When I exit epsxe, I get the message
Error reading CD: 0X0004 0,2,16
Error reading CD: 0X0004 0,2,0
in the DOS wimdow.

I have a Duron 700 processor,
Guillemot maxi gamer 3D Voodoo2

CD-ROM: ePSXe CDR ASPI core 1.4.0.

Have you properly configured this plugin? You have to select the correct CD-Rom in the plugin configuration AND the letter of the CD-Rom in ePSXe.

Yes, I've properly configured the plugin and chosen the right CD-Rom. Do you think that maybe I need another plugin for the CD-Rom?

Oh yes, I've tried several other games and none did work.

I've never had any problems with bleem or VGS though, probably because you don't have to configure anything.

I tried all the CDR plugins I could find, but none worked.
But I don't think that there's anything wrong with my computer as I have no problems running VGS and Bleem

There's an easy way to check if your computer is the problem. Try making an ISO of one of the games, and run it directly from ePSXe. If it works, there's something wrong with your CD configuration.

If you need help making an ISO, I suggest you search the boards, there are plenty of threads here on this issue.

Can you give us a few more details, like what games have you tried, which plugins are you using, etc? This way we can try to help.

It's likely a problem with the CD-Rom configuration. Now, here's a couple things you may want to try:

1) If you are using Windows NT/2000/XP, try the Internal WNT/W2K plugin. Just make sure you set the correct letter for you drive.

2) If that fails, or you're using W95/W98/WMe, try the Internal ASPI and Pete's ASPI plugin. For both of these, besides setting the correct letter, you need to click on "configure", and select the apropriate drive. For Pete's Plugin, after setting the drive place a PSX CD-Rom in the drive and press "try autodetection", so it can choose the apropriate read mode for you drive.

3) Make sure both "Enable Accurate CD-Rom Timing" and "Disable CD-Rom Status" are NOT checked, since they are unnecessary for most games.

If this doesn't work, post a message here and we'll try to think of something else.
