PS1 game doesn't work is any PS system available to you
It reads in your PC fine, or near fine
You want to be able to play these off of your computer
That's it! Everything is free! (except the game, obviously)
Oh, by the way, this is my first instructable, so don't hate me too much for this. D:
Step 1: Reason
I guess I'll go ahead and tell you mine.
I loved my PS1 copy of Marvel Vs. Capcom, like a child. Sadly, my PS2 had different plans. So did my PS3. I wanted my baby back, so I got mad.
After doing it the first time, I decided to revive my Twisted Metal 2 disc as well. :D
Step 2: Required Software, Etc.
A PS1 Emulator of your choice (I recommend ePSXe)
ISO file burner (I used ImgBurn)
Both of these are free, and can easily be found through google.
PS1 Disc - It doesn't have to be perfect, but it can't be too horrible
Computer that works (Semi at least :P)
Disc Drive that can read an old crap disc
Well, that's it, once you get all of this installed, proceed to the next step after reading the very large and scary disclaimer at the bottom.
I'm in no way or form responsible for any damage, or anything else related to these instructions you a reading. Don't blame me if you screw up.
Step 3: Creating an ISO Using Your PSX Disc
Don't worry if it takes a while, it's okay, if any errors come up, don't worry, sometimes it doesn't matter, just bypass them. Once you hear this weird success noise, click on the next step!
Also, once it's done, your can take out your disc, and destroy it for all I care. (READ THE DISCLAIMER BEFORE YOU YELL AT ME FOR SAYING THAT)
Step 4: Open Your PSX Emu and Play!
