Unpack it and make sure the file is correctly referenced in its .cue file (if it's used).
Read the thread from the start, it's been explained at least by two people:

Hello. In fact, we've created one on google docs. It's better to use because not everybody understand Frech interface of Framapad.org

Was about to suggest using Google docs and it's done already before we know it. Awesome, keep up the good work.

Thanks @dmitry_smagin @Senor Quack and @zear so much for this! I know I've contacted each of you in the past about working on a PSX emulator. I can't believe we finally have an official one! The Zero has a huge amount of awesome original and ported games and emulators but, this is the one I've always wanted. It seems to be working great so far, too! Thanks!

By the way, is there any way a hack for Parappa the Rapper could be made to fix the timing? It's kinda unplayable, right now.

Feel stupid I haven't looked for the answer in the forum. I've managed to run the .emc file. Great job everyone! Games are fantastic

Turn off 'Forced XA Updates' for that any musical games that depend on timing. Until we get per-game settings, you'll have to remember to turn it back on for other games, or you will get audio dropouts in games that use XA audio (music/speech usually) and the FPS drops.

Just tested
Alien Trilogy
Castlevania - Symphony of the Night
Doom
Final Doom
Final Fantasy 7 8 9
Resident Evil 2 Dual shock Version

All worked without tweaking.

However Policenauts Translated did not work which is a shame but I've not tweaked anything yet.
I've got every PSX rom (proper bin rips) so it'l take a while.
Going to test next
Chrono Cross
Gran Turismo 1 and 2
Metal Gear Solid (impressed if that works)
Tekken series
Ridge racer series
Wipeout series

All working without tweaks
So far this is an outstanding release

Metal Gear Solid (impressed if that works)

It does, I'm playing it right now. Just beginning the first mission, but so far no issues other than some audio stuttering during a cutscene (once)

Excellent release! Most everything I've thrown at it has run great. The only two games I've had issues with are King's Field (original Japanese version with the English patch), which doesn't load, and Spyro the Dragon, which loads up the text box where the memory card save information prompt should be (on the title screen) and doesn't progress past that (though the idle animations and music continue to play as per usual). I'm an idiot and put the bios in the wrong folder. Whooooops.

Beyond that it's just really minor issues. Some slight sound stuff glitches here and there, gradients not being as smooth as they normally are, etc. I'm fairly picky and none of it has been enough to impede my enjoyment of anything that I've thrown at it so far. Some 3D heavy games (Spyro the Dragon, for example) run decently but are a bit choppy, dropping quite a few frames here and there.

I had more or less given up on the idea of the GCW doing PSX, so this is a nice surprise all-around.

The devs here are awesome like that. They make the GCW Zero a great device, without it would just be a brick with buttons and a screen.

This is true, and don't take them for granted (like I may or may not have done before)

Anyway, I've put this in the google document as well, but this is what I have tested so far (all USA versions):

Driver -  Works with: HLE   BIOS
Final Fantasy Tactics - Works with: HLE   BIOS
Mega Man Legends 2 - Works with: HLE   BIOS note: audio is very out of sync during cut-scenes
Metal Gear Solid - works with: HLE   BIOS

All of the above run at a good frame rate and with little to no issues other than minor audio problems, except for MML2 as mentioned above, which for some reason has an increasing long difference in the video and audio during the cut-scenes. I have only played enough of each to test, so when I play through them for real there may be more to report.

I have a whole bunch of games I will try eventually, but my SD is just too small  :'(

BTW for thoses who want to (re)discover the giant catalogue of the psx games, i highly recommend this site, they've got screenshots so it's easier to browse the psx library : http://www.musee-des-jeux-video.com/fr/sys/31-playstation/2/all

I'm trying to run Spyro using the scph1001.bin BIOS, but when the game tries to access a memory card, the screen freezes, any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
Something to note is that the sounds work fine during the intro cutscene, but there is no music
