I'm running pcsxr on Ubuntu Bionic (18.04) which works great. However, I notice that it will play .BIN images but not .ISO images. Pcsxr has the option to play games either from CD (File -> Run CD) or from an image file (File -> Run ISO).
Is the "Run ISO" option in pcsxr not suitable for ISO images but only for BIN images? What is the difference between the two?
Similarly, I have tried to burn an ISO image to a CD to play it on my wife's vintage PSX (the very first clunky model!) but this end in a black screen with no activity just like it does on the pcsxr emulator. Is the CD format used by the PSX actually an ISO9660 file system?
On a different note, is there still a support forum with recent and frequent activity somewhere? I haven't been able to find anything except years old forum archives.
All suggestions appreciated!
