As repeated many times in CWC support thread:

That being said some games run differently on emulators than they do on real hardware and many simple cheats made for PSP will not work on emulators until perfect emulation is reached. That might not be anytime soon, so you'll always need to search for better cheats for affected games.

And if you can't fine better ones, just learn how to make your own, on windows it should be very easy to make basic cwcheats for most games using my CE cheat table.

Also since you're using cheat.db, make note that:

Note that when using cheats that doesn't have the desired effect, they still do their job correctly and patch game memory, however since they patch wrong things they potentially are breaking the game.
You should not use any savestates made after enabling such "non working" cheats, disable/remove them and restart emulation/reloading from in-game save to fix the corruption and avoid problems with the game.
The same procedure should be followed when the game breaks while using "working" cheats as many of those made for psp games especially for the popular western releases were pretty bad, definitely not safe to keep activated all of the time.
