PSX isos are usually (afaik) MODE2/2352 (but you probably know that). Tell CDmage to accept your .img with MODEL2/2352 and it will do the trick.
no i dont know how to do that lol. How would i go about telling CDmage about that?
If i can get this working id write a mini tutorial on my experiance getting this working for noobies like me.
most of my game emu experiance has been using dreamcast to run (Dreamsnes), and playing ps2 games off a hard drive. i wont get into that for legal reasons just in case. Im not good at programming in anything besides html but you only need to explain once and i can get it. =0)
When you say you downloaded it in IMG format, did it include the BIN/CUE/CCD files, or did you (or whoever you downloaded it from) accidentally delete them? If so, that'd explain why you're getting a borked end result.
Have you tried borrowing the CD from someone and actually ripping it yourself?
Kind of reminds me of the problems people were having getting Saturn Bomberman and Snatcher running in emulators when the only problem was that the most popular images floating around the net were dorked up.
I just used MagicISO to make a bin/cue of the game (from an original CD) and it booted fine. For the hell of it, I decided to test out Biohazard Dual Shock Director's Cut and it booted fine as well (other than some audio issues, which I haven't troubleshoot yet)

- Need to organize your PS1 disc images? Use PS1 Renamer. Never have to worry about looking up a GameID number ever again! - Unless otherwise stated, I'm using the latest version of pSX Emulator with SCPH-1001.
If you're still looking at how to use CDMage to convert another format (such as .img or .iso) into a .bin file, I can probably help. I had some trouble at first, but it's real simple once you figure it out.
Start up CDMage and open the file you want to convert. You'll be given a prompt on what image type the file is, select 'M2/2352 track'. Then it's just a matter of going to the file tab, selecting 'Save As', and after selecting a the filename a selection box will pop up with some options to choose. At the very top it should have something like 'S:01 T:01 MODE2/2352'. And beside that another drop down menu with 'MODE2/2352'.
Keep everything as is, select OK, and away you go! It'll automatically save a new file under the filename you originally selected to save as, with a CUE sheet as well.
