What does it mean if your computer freezes when playing a backup copy of a game using ePSXe AND Bleem?

I have a backup copy of GT2 that a friend loaned me to try. I experience computer lockups when racing. Freezes my whole system. At first I thought it was because of overclocking but I started playing GT1, no problems. Then I played some PC games .. mainly Max Payne for a few hours with no problems.

Like I said I tried the game in both Bleem and ePSXe and I get the same lockups at the same place.

It sounds like you have a bad copy. ePSXe does not like bad copies and will freeze, lockup, or crash if a copy of a game is bad enough. My advice would be to go and rent the game and try it out. If ePSXe or bleem! still has problems w/an original, then you have another problem. I am assuming that all the other games you mentioned are originals, right?
bleem! having a problem even w/a copy is, IMHO, to be expected.
To me, bleem! is a "flaky" piece of software that runs some games well, some not so well, and a lot not at all.

If it crashes in the same spot for both progs, it's gotta be a problem with the CD. Try making an ISO out of it and see what happens.

download blindread from www.blindwrite.com and make an ISO image of the CD he loaned you and try using the internal ISO support.. I noticed that ISO's play much better than my PSX CDs do...
