Topic: SEGA Saturn emulator SSF problems... anyone here know what's up?

I've been using this Saturn emulator called SSF, and it works like a charm with real physical discs.
But most of my games are either ISOs or BIN/CUE files. (Which it doesn't support directly, but through the magic of virtual drive mounting it should work.)

Every time I try to mount any of my ISOs through any virtual drive softwares, however, the BIOS boots up to the empty CD drive screen and gives me the error message "Disc unsuitable for this system".
I'm 100% sure I'm using the right region of BIOS, and I know for a fact my ISO files aren't corrupted, because they all run fine through Yabause.

I might be talking to thin air here, but if anyone can help me--please do.

Try extracting the files off of the ISO.

So extract the iso files onto a physical disc? What am I extracting them to? :S

Anywhere on your computer. Preferably to a folder that the contents are named after.

For example, if it was Sonic X-treme 718, you would extract the contents of the ISO to "Sonic Xtreme 718".

EDIT:Or just use Yabause since that seems to work fine--Yabause IMO is easier to use and more accurate to Saturn.

Hmm... it's still not working, even though I've always had all of my Saturn games organized into folders.
For example, I have a "Sonic Jam ISO" folder, and on the inside it contains "Sonic Jam (U).iso", "Sonic Jam (U).mdf", and "Sonic Jam (U).mds".
Still fails to boot.

"Disc unsuitable for the system" error.
Guuuuuhhhhhhhhhhh.

And the thing is, SSF works leaps and bounds better than Yabause.
Yabause won't even RUN Astal.

SSF is too complicated for me. the problem itself sounds strange.

Use 7-Zip. The isos probably aren't extracted yet and you need an extracting system.

So I found out the problem--I've been using the wrong ISO mounting program.
Apparently it only works with Virtual Clonedrive?? Not sure why every other software failed for me.

And I've always used 7-Zip.
