    3...2...1... someone finds away to dump "subversive" code. Anything that can be read by a drive can be dumped!

    EDIT: WAIT the article is from 2003. [​IMG]

    Well we can now see how successful that was. [​IMG]

    It stills exists, in "Armed Assault" without a proper No-dvd and after a few minutes, you turn into a bird (sic)

    It's like those DVDs that some online rental sites experimented with where they sent you a copy of the movie (an actual copy, not a retail disc) and it was on a type of disc that would start to deteriorate after so many hours and you would just throw it away instead of returning it when done. But people could just throw it in the burner as soon as they got it, thus solving nothing.

    Before that it was used on a couple of Codemasters' PSX games and then the PS2.

    For this to work, most of the games being released will have to be good.

    Can't burners copy damaged sectors already ?
    I think I saw a option for this in a burning program already.

    Yes but the problem lays in that the dvd drives automatically correct any errors they come across (or if there are too many then they will think they failed to read the disc).
