Is there any difference between image formats (i.e. ISO, BIN/CUE, UIF, etc...)? I've been making ISOs without any problems until Star Ocean 3. The ISO give the generic Win7 "Program stopped responding" message, and the BIN/CUE had a unique reaction with my pc up (taskbar and desktop icons disappeared), leading to a lengthy reboot... Is there any chance the image format affects playability? I had that with my psx games and ePSXe.
For instance, Ehergiez would only work as BIN/CUE for me. Also, my FF8 disc 1 WILL NEVER give a rip that will get past the opening video. Would that be the case? Just something wrong with the disc?
First it is impossible for a file to do things to your PC like make the desktop icons disappear, especially a file you create yourself. You probably caught some virus or something got broken in your windows installation. All formats should be the same. Maybe the game is a dual layer one and your image making program doesn't handle it?
I recommend using imgburn to create your ISOs
Oh it figures then. Why are you doing all this? We have a plugin for reading ISO files directly. No mounting or anything. That's what causes your crashes.
You didn't mention all that happened AFTER PCSX2 froze. Icons disappearing is probably explorer.exe crashing, which happens when an unresponsive program fails.

1.Use ImgBurn(I've encounter a posts before here and on different forums about problems with PS2 games and the images are created with MagicISO)
2.You don't need to mount the image to play it.Just select Linuzappz ISO for CDVD plugin and select the ISO with it(or leave the ISO location as empty and this way every time you try to start a game from File=>Run CD\DVD,it will ask which image to load)
3.Or you can use the newest beta r1888 which has build in ISO loader(File=>Run ISO image)
I'm so confused lol.
I prefer Linux programs for making disc images, they seem to come out best when I use Brasero or K3b or something.
Plus those programs come fully featured and are freeware, they work great.
Windows programs like MagicISO and whatever feel totally bloated in comparison, not to mention they often require online purchase or even subscription to use fully.
btw since you have problems with Start Ocean 3,did you enable the Gamefix for tri-ace games(VU Add Hack - Special fix for Tri-Ace games)?
