I am running pal FF8, and I just completed disc1, and when I switched to disc2 it says wrong disc though I am 100% sure this is disc2.

what's the deal???? I tried to save to different mem slots, but no good. I also tried to start the game from disc2, just ePSXe just give me a black screen when I try to run from disc2.

plz help

You gotta find your way around the copyprotection. Patch the game with a PPF or enable subchannel reading if your drive supports it

As I said, your drive has to support this feature, if it doesn't, there are other ways, but the best one IMO is to DL a PPF patch for your version of the game (read UK patch for UK version, FR patch for French version, etc...).

Unfortunately you'll have to find the PPF yourself cause the only site I know is considered illegal on this forum. Google is your friend, don't worry it's easy to find ;)

EDIT: I'm going to bed, if it doesn't work, you'll have to wait a little more for help unless someone else comes

my PSX is broken so i cant check.

one question, should you be able to start to the game on any cd and not just 1? if else i guess it's corrupt.
i know with Driver 2 if you start the game with disk 2.... it loads the intro movie then says incorrect disk please insert disk 1

also you could try it in your ps2 if you have one....but u probably already thought of that if you had one, didnt you?
or you could try in a freinds psx/ps2 (duh)

and if the disk is all scratched up, get a GameDoctor. saved at least 5 of my games :thumb:

I guess if you can't run the disk 2, your iso is corrupted or something like that. Any disk you may run you should see an animation then it says Final Fantasy IX (ofcourse), then you have the option to start a new game or load a game. If it's not the right disk they will tell you witch to put in. So if you just see a black screen this means it just don't work at all. It's kind of strange cause if you played the 1st disk without problems you shouldn't have any with the 2nd. I guess the best thing to do would be to download it again or get it somewhere else cause, I have that game and didn't have any problems to switch to disk 2.

ok, your disc 2 is probably messed up then. are you playing off CD or ISO?

[rules]uh, no[/rules] :nono: downloading it is never the right solution, it might've caused this problem in the first place :rolleyes:
