Re: PSIO won’t boot but used to

Unlikely. Try another card from a different brand to rule out a defective or "difficult" SD card. Also remember: 8-32 GiB needs FAT32, anything bigger needs ExFAT. Try using the Windows onboard tool to format.

It's so bloody stupid that Microsoft disables that by default in their OS.
Amen.

On Windows 10, you can solve that annoyance by searching for "File Explorer Options" on the start menu, go to the "View" tab, and uncheck "Hide extensions for know file types".

Maybe just a regular screenshot. ;-) Press PrntScrn and paste it to Paint or something. Or, to have a more rounded experience in terms of screenshots, try Greenshot . It can, for example, automatically save a screenshot of only a selected window in PNG format. It can the be uploaded directly within ...

Can you provide screenshots of your Valkyrie directory with the selfmade multidisc.lst in there?

does not necessarily need to be redump compatible all the time, as long, as the source is good.
True. I just keep asking that because if it is Redump compatible, it really should work, whereas if it isn't, trying to create a new image using different software or another drive might help.

My PAL WipeOut 2097 was working fine the last time I tried it.
Is your image Redump compatible?

Re: Initial Set-up On Each Restart & Power Cycle

I think the standard Windows 10 function should do the trick. Just make sure you're using ExFAT and not FAT32 for anything above 32 GiB. And using a cluster size of 1024 KiB was suggested at some point to circumvent a bug in the PSIO firmware(s) and have some games playable. Though I have an image t...

Re: Only works with cover off?

I wouldn't do that. Contact should be fine, Matt and Yuri made sure there's enough space to work with. Might have a cut trace or bad solder point somewhere, maybe on the port itself. Also, try inserting and removing the PSIO 10-20 times to get rid of corrosion on the PSX' port. Maybe it's just that....

Re: 512 file limit

As far as my understanding goes, the limit of 512 files/directories only counts for the root directory, not the subdirectories. Thus, you don't get "twice the amount of games" by not using cover art, since that is in each game's subdirectory. You can probably get one extra game by not using a wallpa...

Re: incomplete boot

Try doing a recovery as per Systems Manual, page 32. Note: not yet noted is that this method requires a FAT32 formatted SD card which might also be required to be 8-32 GiB, not more, nor less.

Re: Question about USB mode, Does the PSX output audio/video

Yes. Like I said, it's just the location of the image file that is different. The PSIO does not grab video or anything.

Re: Question about USB mode, Does the PSX output audio/video

No, the PSX is playing it regularly. The difference is that the image is saved somwhere on the PC instead of an SD card in the PSIO.

Re: Libcrypt

Then either download the CUE file from redum.org, or use your existing one and make a CU2, as explained in the manual. Always use the one matching your rip. Images from the the very same disc but different drives often turn out (slightly) different. Also, you'd have to take extra care to make sure ...

Re: Region license problems

The Bitmap file can have any name. Just make sure there is no more than one Bitmap file in a game's directory. The Cue sheet is ignored either way and both Cue and CU2 sheets have nothing to do with the cover art. The Wine issue seems to be related to the tool tips. As soon as you hover long enough ...

Re: APE Escape (French SCES-02028) not running (SPI file support??)

The SPI files contains the subchannel data for the disc. This is used by Libcrypt, a common copy protection. Check via Redump.org or other means if your specific disc (not game) uses Libcrypt, and if yes, see if there's a patch to remove it. If it's a PPF, you can use the System Console to apply it ...

Re: Process for games having 2 (or more) CD ?

Alright, so the images should be fine, then it almost has to be the multidisc.lst. If you open that again in Notepad++ and "Save as" it as ANSI instead of Unicode, does that help? (As mentioned in this thread).
