Free loader IS REAL and it is for ANY cube NTSC/PAL Q or Nintendo, I dunno if it would work with copies though my guess is that it wouldn't, BUT however if you wanna play backups i have heard that someone is currently making a workaround for this, Dont ask WHO WHERE i dunno i just heard it from quite a reliable source !!
It involves using one of the expansion Bays @ the bottom of the cube and hacking a standard DVD drive to run on the cube instead of the Toploading drive, sounds expensive though to me !!!!?!
