    Exclamation PLaystation 1 emulator, Disk Drive NOT working
    Hi, i have download a PS1 emulator to run my many playstation 1 games. I have a problem, when i insert the disc, the disk drive makes a "reading" sound for about 30 seconds and then ejects the disk. Because of this i cannot run the games as the emulator says it cannot read the disk. How do i get the disk drive to stop ejecting the disk??? PLEASE HELP!!!!!! Thanks

    does your disc drive work when playing dvds and so on? could be the drive on its way out.

    The disc drive works perfectly, it burns cds, plays dvds.

    have you tried changing the dvd plugin the emulator uses?

    are you using the PCSX reloaded or just standard PCSX?

    are you sure the game works? if not, creating an iso from it might do the trick (unfortunately i cant tell you how to do this, as its against the rules).

    i don't think thats the problem, its the disk drive that just chucks the disk out, as no cd image comes up on screen. I think i may just give up and get my old ps1 from the attic. But thanks for your help
