What about using audio CD instead of CD -> DVD conversion?
Dunno if someone already posted it... however....
My mind came back to some years ago, when Drakonite introduced the UMCDR idea to make ps2menu (ah so many memories:)) reading CDs without any modchip. Later (as someone probably remebers) the project was taken by the great Eugene Plotnikov in his SMS and he introduced CDDAFS.
So my question is: would it be possible to add any CDDAFS support to ESR?
I thought HDloader can emulate cds.... so the problem is "only" with the MECHACON being able to autenicate cds.... and here it comes CDDAFS...
But probably I'm missing something... I'd like to know what ffgriever (or other programmers of course) thinks.
I attached the first SMS release in the hope it can be of some help: it includes CDDAFS infos & patcher
Bye and thanks to all ps2 developers.
