I have problem with my PCSX2 v. 1.6.0. When I try to start any game it, I get this error message:

Failed to read/write NVM/MEC file. Check your BIOS setup permission settings.

Do you know how can I resolve this error?

  • What directory is your PCSX2 program installed in? May 31 at 13:03
  • @nightsurfer It is in : "C:\Users\leviathan\Documents\PCSX2 1.6.0"

  • The one suggestion I see is to try installing PCSX2 in your C:\ folder, in a directory labeled PCSX2. There may be some weird permissions issues with the program and required directories living in your users folder. May 31 at 16:40
  • @nightsurfer Could only move PCSX2 to C:\ PCSX2 help? Or should I uninstall and reinstall it again?

I reinstalled it and placed it into C:\PCSX2 folder. And it worked.
