Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
CD-RW drives can't burn the boot sector of PSX games, which is why you need to chip your console to play copied games. PSX emulators ignore the boot sector of the game.
The bottom line is yes, your copied games will work in ePSXe. I guess it is kind of like a modded console. :)

Does anyone know WHY CD-Rs wont copy PS discs????
I tried to back up my library and my Burner (Adaptec 4.0) said this -
"This CD had over 100 (something technical), and Adaptec can only copy up to 100 (techinal). This CD cannot be copied."
So, HOW do you back them up?

Allnatural is right, there are sectors at the beginning of the disc that PC CD Roms can't read.
As to backing up games for legal purposes Scotty? Use CDR-Win, it works fine.
