hello all.. i'm new and all and for as far as i could see i didnt see any1 eles asking this question...
i got epsxe not long ago, the 1st thing i got on it was Front Mission 3 witch works perfectly, then i got Alundra 2... witch dosnt work, it wont start... i think it may have something to do with the file format seeing as in FM3 i got a BIN and a CUE where as Alunda 2 is a MDF and a MDS, can any1 tell me if this is the reason why it isnt working and what i can do to fix it...

get ISObuster, load the mdf/s, extract raw data from the iso, it will convert it into a bin or an img (forgot witch).
mdf/s are not supported by epsxe.

You can either rerip the image into a different format or you could use a virtual CD drive to mount the image and run it iin ePSXe as a CD.

If you have trouble with these image formats (which I assume you made a copy from), I suggest you run it DIRECTLY from the cd-rom drive.

"mount the image and run it iin ePSXe as a CD" hum... you mean just slap the .mdf and .mds on to a blank CD then play it in ePSXe right?
and as for the ISObuster way... works perfectly! it just took me some time cause i actually went into the mdf file ("CD - Session 1 - Track 1") where as all you have to do is right click on CD only, and covert the RAW files... well thanks every 1, but i'm still interested in that directley puttin it onto a CD... could you tell me more about it...? (i mean, am i right by saying you just have to put the 2 files onto a blank CD?)

I'm sure he will rip all his cds into bin and cue from now.
But I doubt it would prevent any further mdf/s files showing up.

No, I mean using virtual CD software like Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120%'s virtual CD feature to make a fake CD drives that will take image files you mount with it and show it as a CD. But now that you got it working it isn't necessary :).
