I didn't start with the insults. Your board did. They started a flame war, they got it. I insulted the ones who insulted me.
I think the discussion was civil until you've started the "It is true that ePSXe is free. But it's still a peice of crap. If it was well coded, then the guys would be smart enough to charge for it. There shouldn't be problem like 'won't work with your hardware'..." argument.
I _really_ disagree with that opinion. ePSXe is the most advanced psx emu right now. Not even the nowadays commercial psx emus I know (well, that's just VGS and Bleem!) are offering the same amount of features (okay, VGS has an higher compatibility, and Bleem!... well, Bleem! is Bleem!
To call an emulator a piece of crap because it doesn't work on your system (and I think it's because of your cdrom drive, since you get a gfx display and sound) isn't very polite. The "if it would be good, it would cost money" statement is even stupid (sorry). Most emulators are freeware, and do you really want to say all that emus are crap? The "emu-freeware" thing is
a) because of legal issues (look at the problems of bleem! and VGS with Sony, look at the rom-situation on other systems)
b) most emu coders are doing it for fun or maybe to proove it can be done (and maybe to get a bit of emu-fame... well, why not?)
And I think it's hard to compare a psx emu with a GBA, SNES or Genesis emu (regarding your "it should work with every kind of hardware" opinion). The older systems don't have to access your pc hardware very much... their gfx emulation isn't very hardware dependend (all drawing is done in software, and the final output is done by simple DirectDraw calls nearly every card should support), the psx sound is more complex, too, and no raw cd data reading is required for playing a rom.
Even the N64 HLE video stuff is more PC-like (and therefore sometimes easier to do) like the psx gpu emulation (of course a N64 emu video plugin coder has to fight against different problems, like the combine mode emulation, or non-power-2 textures).
Well... my advice to you: try to make an ISO of your game (maybe check out some game compatibility site first, to see if the game is supported), use a soft gpu plugin, and maybe turn off the sound (using a NULL spu plugin). That way you have nearly no hardware-dependend problems, and the game should work (not nice, but it is a start). After that try to enable the sound, then use a hw/accel. gpu plugin and finally try to play the game directly from your cd... so you will find out what's giving you troubles.
Also: please read the FAQs first (maybe you have, maybe you don't)... most common problems are covered in the FAQs, really.
