I have yet to use my DVD burner sense I built this computer (4 or so months ago):scared:
Er, I don't think this is the place to be asking that.
Should I try the official Nintendo forums:idea:
we can talk about people hacking the vitual console and getting free games but not someone who wants back ups of their games?
If you go to the OFFICIAL forums, there is a good chance you will be reported and consequently arrested for piracy.
Well seeing as how the answer is no. I would find it to be a hard legal argument against someone for piracy.
I'm pretty sure you can burn them all you want. However, you can't actually do anything with the burned copy so I don't know why you'd want to.
Ninty probably thought of that and made them burnable, but not playable.
it is burnable but you 1) need to reverse the moter in your DVD drive (not the burner!) to be able to get the contents of the disc and 2) you need to find a way to make it into an ISO that has all the info backwords so when you burn it, the info can only be read when spinning in the opposite direction of normal DVD drives. then you need to go into the future and buy a modchip for it and install it for you to be able to play it. i heard that Doctor Brown is selling his plains for the Flux Compasater. you will only need 1.21 gigawats of electricity if you decide to buy it though. good luck!
The discs don't spin backwards.
you sure? ive heard people say that the Wii has the discs spin the opposite direction just like the xbox
Reverse the motor?
Neither of them do. It's just a rumor that spouted when some person claimed the GameCube discs spin backwards. However, if you look at the discs spin in the GameCube, you'll see it spins clockwise, like all CD's.
The XBOX was basically just PC hardware with a custom OS on it. Some people even got Windows running on it.
GC games are read and burnt backwards. I haven't seen any info about whether the Wii discs are burnt the same way. Google it.
Edit: I think you guys are confused. The discs are burnt from outside->inside. (I think it's this way.) whereas normal discs are burnt the other way around. So when you try to read a gamecube disc on a pc, the disc drive will read from the inside first, which is the normal way of doing things. In the case of GC discs, this means it will not read anything, and as a result, wont be readable by your pc/drive.
The discs still spin the right way.
No, watch it.
Go ahead, look at it. Open the GameCube disc cover when it's playing. You can see the disc is spinning clockwise (also known as the same as every other disc).
im an xbox modder. i know 100% for a FACT that the xbox drive spins backwords because in order to get the Samsung 616 DVD drive to work in an xbox you must flash the firmware AND reverse the direction in which the moter spins. also the xbox ISO files are just normal ISO's but they have the data in them mirrored so it can be burned in a normal DVD burner yet have the info backwords so the xbox can read it. dont believe me? ask about it on the Xbox-Scene forums. its the BIGGEST xbox mod site on the net
Give me a link to a site which will support that, please.
And how come XBOX's can play DVD's if they spin backwards?
I gurantee there is some other form of piracy protection with the wii.
And I am still pretty sure it was never made possible to burn GCN games. And as far as Wii discs go, they spin in a normal direction, they are just written inside <-> out like was said a bit before me.
I'm guessing checking the hash of the disc or reading sectors that most burners can't write to.
Xbox-Scene Tutorial: How to replace your Xbox DVD drive with a model 616T Samsung DVD-rom drive
that is a tutorial at Xbox-Scene on how to mod a samsung DVD drive to be put into an xbox. read the final step. it tells you that you need to flip the moter 180 degrees. why would you need to do that if it didnt spin backwords?
