This is quite strange. I was playing through the game, saving only on the memory card (not using any save states) and everything was going great. However on one mission, the game constantly chrashed, not allowing me to go on. I guessed that this was a cd problem, so I borrowed my friends copy of the cd and created an iso (I like to make them because isos load so much faster then from cd drives, and no annoying spin up sounds!). I loaded the game once again, and then went to the memory card. However, a problem came up. The save didn't seem to have the game! I was shocked, so I checked it out with the memory card viewer, and the file appears to be there:

I went into the emu, and made sure that the memory card file was in the right directory, which it was. Now I'm siting here, 10 hours into the game and unable to load, any ideas anyone?

Is something wrong with your disc (like severe scratches) that prevents you from making an image with it?

Yea, I tried to make another iso with my origonal disk, and it bugs out half way saying a file fma3ar.mcb is corrupted, then it shuts down. My friends cd works both in the pc by cd rom and by iso. I guess I could start over on the ps2, but i'd really like to finish it this way :(
