Well it looks like i finally got off my lazy butt, and subscribed to the forums. I never really thought about it, since the fact all my problems were already answered on different threads.

Anywayz, heres my problem. First my comp specs:

------------------------------------------------------------------
P4 1.7ghz
512MB 800mhz RD-Ram
75GB 7200 RPM HD
Generic 16x40 DVD-Rom
Abit Siluro 64MB Geforce 2 w/ TV Out
WinXP Professional
EPSXE 1.40
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Problem: No games load

I have all of Petes Latest Plugins (My Favorites)
I have the latest Nvidia WinXP Reference Drivers
I have tried various configurations, including software modes

HELP!

try disabling DMA on your cd rom drive.. or enable DMA if its disabled.. Some cd rom drives have problems reading psx cds.. Sometimes some irq conflicts can also make cd rom drives act up.. Upgrading the firmware for your cd rom drive may also remedy your situation..

ummm ok

All options you have stated have been tested......

-BIOS Worked
-ISO no Work
-XP doesnt give the option for DMA
-I did have WinME before, and the drive had no problem reading the CD

I think im gonna cry.

WAIT! I Know! I'll DUAL-BOOT! Then ill still have WinME!

Thats only if you try to dual boot win98/winme

if you try win98/winxp and winme/winxp, it wont, winxp is compatible with a logical partition, it doesnt have to be primary

Anyone actually running EPSXE on WinXP? i really dont wanna go through the dual boot :(

Do yourself a favor

and never use WinME again. You'll find that W2K is much more reliable, and is only barely slower. The speed that you sacrifice is more than paid back in stability.

As far as WinXP is concerned, I ran it from RC1 to the RTM build, and got tired of it. That said, I never had any problems with ePSXe under WinXP.

I'm back to Win2000 now.
