    I've dumped the game with alcohol and it came out as .mdf / mds files. I've read that I can simply rename to .bin and it should be Okay, but I've tried both Wii-SX and PSX-R and neither works (yes I have the BIOS files in the correct location too)
    Both emulators I've installed via the homebrew browser so the folders are setup in the correct locations and I'm just loading it up and choosing the .bin file (approx 660mb) and both emulators just freeze.

    All I can assume is that renaming the file to bin wasn't enough and I should re-dump the game, what's best to use to get a regular .bin & .cue

    I think PSX-R is actually picking up the BIN file OK, it shows the SCES-##### code, game title then the next line

    EXECUTE

    is the last thing printing in the post-game on-screen text. It simply stops at this point, the text remains on screen and the wiimote falls out of sync

    It crashes using WiiSX b1, and I don't have much hope for it on beta2 either tbh...... you're hard pushed getting the game to run well (if at all) on the PC emulators! (I've only got it working on epsxe, but there's plenty issues there - pSX just crashes!)

    Wow really? I thought because it was one of the original launch titles it would be a sure thing, hence why I chose it. Is there a compatibility list for WiiSX floating around?
    I found this http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiSX/Compatibility but it's far from complete

    Dang, beaten to it, lol....
    Aye like blackshadow says, game won't even boot, usb2 mod or not (as I expected) - I can see your logic in thinking the earlier releases will more likely work, unfortunately it doesn't work like that, particularly in the case of emulation on a machine such as the PS1..... shame, as my mum loves Destruction Derby and only has a Wii & a grotty old PC that near-blows up when it tries to run ePSXe hehe...

    Anyway, the problem clearly isn't due to your dumping method apoptygma...
