    They say that you can copy on CD-R or DVD-R also DS and PSP games... 'nuff said.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    It's a scam ... a very well-know, and well-documented, scam ...

    Yes your right this is a well known scam and has been doing the rounds saying it can copy all the console games and has been for quite a few years now. Steer clear of it.

    Here's the deal. You can't write Wii games, because the media identifier code on the media (hardcoded) cannot be altered. In other words, you can't make a DVD-R, +R, -RW etc look like a standard pressed DVD.

    Also, reading a Wii game requires a low-level reading process. Otherwise the built-in hardware on the DVD drive repairs the "bad sectors" on the disc - thus the copy is not a 1-to-1 copy of the original. There are only a couple of DVD drives that can low-level read a disc in this fashion (several Hitachi LG brand drives). This is mostly due to a mistake made by the manufacturer that left a "security hole" open and has been exploited by programs such as RawDump (often later firmware version corrected this mistake - thus its very important to ensure the firmware version of one of these drives before buying).
