    All the laser sees when it is reading a CD/DVD is a single pit/bump at a time, it can't tell which way the disc is spinning.

    did i forget to mention that THAT IS A HORRIBLE IDEA CSIGUY4U if you reverse the onse on the molex connector, it will short it out... you would have to dissect it and find the motor and reverse chords... dumbass

    xbox and xbox360 does this. they write the game in reverse and a short little DVD video at normal spin for when you put it in a normal dvd player. its just a short little video followed by a screen saying "please put this game into an xbox console." however this in no way stoped people from modding the original xbox

    Actually XBOX 1 doesn't, I know for a fact, I may have some "copies" of my XBOX games that work fine with a software mod. These are, of course, games I already own, the backups are in case something happens to the initial disks. The disks are written at normal disk reading direction. Also, I think that guy did mean to actually cross the wires inside the motor, not from the PSU, obviously running opposite wires from the PSU will wreck it, but I have done this before with motors, looking back. I wouldn't be surprised if XBOX 360 doesn't either, since there are modders there too.

    Trying doing that with a writer, and tell me how that goes. You can rip Wii and GCN games from the discs, writing them again is another story.

    I believe someone could just get the firmware and reverse engineer it. I don't think you have to go to such lengths as opening the drive up. Just that someone will eventually just find a way to program it. It'd most likely have to be low-level programming though (hardware level)

    Interesting. So is it possible to make a console where it is impossible to make backup copies of games? If so then why don't companies do it?
