It's a known issue; it can't play any mp3 files. I read somewhere, that another file type for them may work (.wav, I think (?))

WAV does work, you just have to change some setting in the options. I spent hours messing with a game, failing over and over. Finally I got WAV working perfect. :) I could post the settings i used during the conversion of the bin/cue and in the emulator a bit later. I stayed up half the night getting it working proper and I do not feel like touching the vita atm.

Some games (e.g. shinning force) cannot load mp3 even in PC ver.

I get it working by using bin2cso to convert the iso to wav/iso/cue format. I use the command line in windows for these steps:

bin_to_cso_mp3.exe -i -w "name of game.cue" foldername

Notes:
1. The backup must be bin/cue format.
2. If your game has spaces in its title then you are required to use "". If no spaces then you can leave those out.
3. In my example foldername is the name of a folder that will be created on your pc that will contain the newly formatted game. The folder is created in the same folder as the game backup. You do not need to specify a path or drive letter.
5. I place the game backup into the same folder as the bin_to_cso_mp3.exe to make things simple.
6. You may need to download the encoder lame.exe to be able to encode the audio properly. Place it in the same folder as the other files.
7. When placing the name of the game into the command use the TAB key to auto complete long filenames.
8. Place the folder containing the wav/cue/iso into any folder in picodrive and launch using the .cue file via the emulator.
