The Enhanced PSX Emulator (ePSXe) is a video-games emulator for the first Sony PlayStation console. ePSXe, when first released, brought the highest compatibility with Sony PlayStation ROMs of any PlayStation emulator. ePSXe works by reading either CDs entered in your CD drive or CD images directly from your hard drive. CD images are single file archives of a disc's contents. If you have a PlayStation ROM in a RAR file (a type of file archive) you will need to extract its contents first and then open the contents. RAR files can be opened with freeware or other shareware.
