Hmmm I get the same problem when I try using the beta. I thought I was the plugin because when I switched to the --96 plugin it at least loaded the game.
Hmmmmmmmmm Thread time.
Ooop, i forgot to ask: Tried any other games on it?
The compatibility list
has this game as Ingame and looks like it's the same problem, I suggest you try the latest beta and maybe change plugins as Savanni mentioned but I wouldn't keep my hopes up.

try mounting in a virtual drive and CLOSING the drive (as in right-click the drive, select "close drive") that's gotten me past a few piracy checks on PC games when I wanted to use an ISO I made to avoid disc-swapping all the time
