Default PSX Hacking Question

I have yet to figure out everything about PSX games.

I have a PSX *.img file do I need to burn it to a CD as is or do I need to convert it to an ISO or Bin file first. What programs are there for things like that.

I already have an insight into hacking PSX I just don't know how to convert my game files between IMG ISO BIN or whatever format they come in. I am not concerned with extracting files from the games I know how to do that.

It shouldn't matter what format your image is in, as long as your extraction/insertion tool can handle it. CDmage is probably the best tool for this and it can handle .img just as well as .iso or .bin.

For what it's worth, though, I just opened an .img file I had to make sure it worked properly with CDmage. (It did.) I then tried doing a Save As to see what format it would save the image in. CDmage saves everything in .iso format. The resulting .iso worked fine in pSX, so there's your answer.

I'm by no means an expert on PSX hacking but I just picked up a translation project last night that I've been meaning to work on for awhile and had some good results, so I'll likely be focusing on PSX hacking myself for awhile.

Okay thanks, I was having trouble with a certain emulator loading IMG files too so I guess Cdmage can fix it.
