DVD read problem
#1
I am not sure if it is a windows driver problem, or a compatability issue with a plugin, but i cant get any of my games to start from the DVD rom.

The emulator comes up fine, and runs great, all configs in the settings screen are just like the original PS2 (it works just as fast as my console)

when i go to the browser, only two things that show are the memory cards, the DVD never reads...

anyone have this problem? how do i work around it...

Which CDVDROM plugin are you using? I'm assuming the Gigahertz one. Did you select the right drive?

Try burning an iso from one of your PS2 discs and use the Linuz CDVD plugin to load the iso directly (don't mount it using Daemon Tools or anything).

Also have you tried the latest beta?

Sounds like you simply didnt choose the right drive, if you open the content of the disc in "My Computer" does it show it at all?

You still didnt answer if it shows the files of the disc in explorer or what CDVD plugin you were using.

yes the files are visible, yes i can access them fine, just that the emulator doesn't like my drives for some reason...

i did the iso method and the games loaded fine, just really choppy, no matter what settings, and i cant play most games, they hang before actual game play starts...and there is a really weird sound problem now, like an echo through a window fan

What are your specs? Your computer probably isn't powerful enough to handle emulation.
Also, could be some errors in your configuration

Yep unfortunatelly that PC isnt good for most games, you could try ticking the "native" checbox in GSdx and use all speedhacks with "x2 cycle rate" and "vu cycle stealing" set to moderate but it probably will work fine only for a few games and not full speed I'm afraid.
