Most likely your disk images aren't correct and need to be fixed or replaced.

Running the cue file is correct but there are a lot of bad Saturn disk images out there.

I don't think that's the case: I'm using a good disk image of NIGHTS: Into Dreams, and it's working fine on Yabause, but whenever I try it with Beetle Saturn on Retroarch, the emulator I'd rather use, it gives me the Drive Empty issue, so it surely must be an emulator issue!

Just google "Saturn archive" you'll find all you need there when you register for free.

Tried going there, all the files are showing a padlock, indicating you can't download them, on the top Google results anyway.

Had this same issue and finally got it sorted out.  Open Launch Box then right click on a Saturn Game and choose edit.  Then under the launcher tab check to see which rom file the launcher is pointed to.  In my case each game was pointing to "gamename (Track 01).bin" instead of "gamename".cue  Changing this to point to the games .cue file fixed the issue.  Also of note I was able to run all of the games through Retroarch using the Beetle/Mednafen Core.  It was only when I attempted to run them in LaunchBox that I received the Drive Empty Message.  And that was with the mednafen_saturn_libretro.dll core selected for Sega Saturn under Associated Platform.
