    I downloaded a .torrent and extracted the .rar file and got 2 files. It was a PSOne game. I have a PSOne with a chip and I'm trying to burn these files onto a cd-r/dvd-r. I have currently ran out of DvD disks so I have to burn with CD's. So I have mounted the .mds file and resulted to many files(videos, .bin, .xa). I just took all the files and moved it do my disk. I inserted the disk into my PSone; it takes awhile to load and the screen is really rumblish/shakey. I don't know what to do with the .mdf because it can't be mounted for some reason.

    The programs I have installed are: Alcohol 120%, MagicISO, ISObuster, Daemon tools, Nero Ultra.

    What do I do with these programs to make my files work on the console(PSOne)?

    -Thanks in advance,
    Sin

    you should just have burnt the mds (selecting this would have burned the mdf) file with alcohol 120,no need to mount it
    cd disk is what you need,ps1 dont read dvd disk,and besides,its the wrong format,ps2 use elf,ps1 use .exe

    Ok, I burned it correctly but the screen inside the game duplicates and shakes. Any suggestions?

    I'm currently using alcohol 120% on a LG device for reading disks. I burn in 'Playstation' format and max speed. I burned the .mds. Thanks for commenting and supporting.

    if the screen is shaking around,might be because the game is the wrong region,i.e trying to play a pal game on a ntsc ps1

    Your media isn't great either. Get some Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden CDs.
