You might not get it, but the idea of this project is not to get backups running, but to be independent from laser-usage also (so we can load PS1-ISOs from more than just CD, be it DVD, LAN, USB, HDD,...).
Without the dependency on the laser, we could even play PS1-Games&PS2-Games on an original Hardware in let´s say 15years.
