    You may not have the required run time files for ePSXe , and the plugins it uses.

    You can get these from the following locations

    How to obtain the Visual C++ 6.0 run-time components
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)


    If you have .Net 1.1 and 1.1 SP1 installed, then the MSVC 7 and 7.1 runtimes are already Installed.
    If you have .Net 2.0 or .Net 2.0 SP1 installed, then the MSVC 8 and 8.1 runtimes are already installed.(2005)

    Not entirely sure but .net 3.5 may install the MSVC 9 runtimes. (2008)

    its possible if you did it wrong that the plugin may still be in the folder and cause psx to screw up due to a missing dependency.

    list your plugins, settings, and makesure the netplay plugin isn't selected.

    honestly stupid

    hi. I ain't quite sure if I'm allowed to ask this here but, what the heck. I'm having trouble running a japanese rom. first I received an error msg that sez something like "cdr read error" with a series of numbers. then when I restarted, upon selecting run CD-ROM in epxe, it doesn't do the trick and my screen resolution goes wild. I am using an US bios btw, does that make sense? does US bios support japanese imports or am I only to use roms from the US? if so, can I use a japanese bios instead?

    the US bios is fine, it will run any PSX game from any region.

    Those numbers are sectors, and can mean either the wrong drive is selected, or the disk/image is damaged.

    I just realized that I need to configure the right read mode settings under cdrom tab :heh:, although I gotta admit 'ts one heck of a tedious, un-guaranteed task but heck, I guess that's what we all are fated to deal with. thanks again squall, you've ever been helpful. :thumb:

    can anybody teach me the right epxe configurations to run ISOs? 'cuz when I run CDroms in my epxe, they do fine, but when I run ISO the screen just goes black and only the controller icon emerges.oO what do I do?

    Just use SapuCDR if you are mounting the images.

    I have a problem... I used to own a PS, so i have several games, and i'm trying to play FFIX, but even after i configure ePSXe, after i go to file>Run CDROM, the window goes black, while the cd is spinning, but doesn't move from there. Any advice?
