First off,

System specs:

See signiture :)

ePSXe specs (as the ones in my sig are incorrect now)

SPU: Standard ePSXe SPU core

CDR plugin: Pete's CDR ASPI / IOCTRL Driver 1.7

Okay, I pop in a CD and fire up ePSXe, and all I get is a black screen and no activity from my cdrom whatsoevr... this happens with ALL my games btw.

I've tried various other plugin cinfigs (ePSXe WinNT/w2k core, Segu's cdrom plugin) with no luck...

I've also tried it with the SCPH1001 bios and still no luck...

All the games I want to play USED to boot the CD and play just fine... it's only recently decided to quit :(

I know I can use ISOs but i would rather use the CDs because I don't have tpoo much space left on my HD right now

(as to why I'm using Pete's D3D driver... well I posted a topic here about it and got no responces :( )

Hey Pete

I'm not sure your 1.7 cdrom plugin is compatible with WinXP... if you knew this I apologize, but I went back to the 1.6 version of your plugin and my cdrom works again :) Problem solved

(of cource it could be that I used adaptecs ASPI layeer installer to install an aspi layer... could that ruin it?

Whoa Pete! Sorry man.. didn't mean to get your gander up! In truth I installed the aspi layyer so I could get CDRWIN to work (it wasn't detecting my burner).... as for the CDDA.. I have this enabled in ePSXe and I have yet to encounter any problems with your plugin, it works fine so far

EDIT: DUDE!! PETE! LOL As soon as I read your responce my ePSXe would no longer boot!! LOL! I swear though, last night I was playing FFIX from CD and it was actually working! I swear! (and yes, I had cdda checked... it was checked this morning)
