Please experts, give me some light in the following issues regarding Playstation LibCrypt and Clone CD.
As i know playstation it performs two checks on the CD inside the PSX. One of these checks looks for the country code, which tells the PSX what country the CD was created in. If the code matches the code that is located in the PSX BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), the boot procedure will continue. For example, a Japanese CD is not playable on a US Playstation because of the country code check. The second check looks for bad blocks at certain locations on the CD. Since only Sony’s CD recorders can produce these, the presence of bad blocks tell the PSX that the CD is authentic. If they are not there, the PSX halts the boot process.
The Question is:
Is the country code copied with CloneCD ? for example if you copie a US cd, the clone must have the same country code so the first check passed in a us PSX.
The second check is the bad blocks, due to 1:1 raw copy of clone cd, bad block must exists also on the duplicate.
If both of the abone checks passed, the psx must boot the cd without Modchip. But it doesnt. WHY?
I am confused, please help
