PCSX-R: "Could not check the disk"

Feb 12, 2010 at 12:56 AM


I'm having a problem running cd's using pcsx.  The bios is in the right place, and I checked and it is the correct size.  The program runs, but everytime I try to run a cd it says it could not check the CD.

I am on a macbook pro running Mac OSX 10.5.8.

Can anyone help me?

Finally! Someone else with the same problem. I running Mac OSX Snow Leopard on my 13 inch Macbook Pro and I'm having the exact same problem. I already posted on a thread in the discussion forum and put up an issue in the issue tracker but no one has looked into it yet...

So, yeah, I'm having the exact same problem. Have you tried ISO's?

Yeah, ISO's seem to work fine... Seems that running games from a disk doesn't work though.

I just use ISO's now but it would be cool to be able to run games from the disk.

All my games are on CD's :'(. Any idea how to make them into ISO files on Mac OSX? Thanks!

Sorry, I don't know how to convert CD's to ISO's.  I usually just download mine from a torrent site.
