    It will need to be modded in some way. I have mine hard-modded, but I'm sure there is some soft-mod way or using a disc-swap or something.
    It isn't like the Dreamcast where you can just burn a game unfortunately, LOL.

    It's possible to play burned copies without modding the psx, however word is that it will deteriorate your laser doing so. It's the swap method, which involves switching discs during the boot up of a game and fooling the system into thinking the lid of the system is always closed. I can confirm it works, but it's a lot of hassle for something that could really damage your psx. If you're extremely desperate, google around for the tutorial. Otherwise, there's always PC psx emulators, or buying legit boot discs that don't ruin your psx laser from use (as far as I know anyways).

    And that reminds me, I really need to get rid of my old modded psone. I have way too much crap collecting dust here that I have no use for anymore.

    There are dongles that you plug into the back of the PSX. No idea where to get though

    That is only for the very first models on the PS1. They removed that port in later versions.
