Re: BGM CD (Background Music CD)

I suspect that (1) your disc is not fully compliant with the BGM standard if the list of songs is not in a separate file (it doesn't make sense to me that that information would be in a real-time file), and (2) there is a problem with the emulator if the disc runs fine on a real player.
