I want to start this new thread for experts only. We’ve came a long way, “working” out the very details of some special protection, which still seems to us unpossible to break.
This thread in his very beginning should have nothing to do with PSX or PS2, all related things about that stuff has been already discussed without end, and they are not wanted for now.
For the moment this topic is a very first try to get in contact with high-graded & complicated hardware issues. In the far future this, here collected information is intended to be the foundation stone for very sophisticated burning techniques.
OK, lets start with a very good idea:
We have had already collected alot proofs and samples that an usual CD-R(W) (and also DVD-+R(W)) creates always a wobble signal at the tracking coils. Burning such recordable disx without wobble would be a big step into the right direction.
Well, so far the track (pits and lands) always was burned into the middle/centre of the ATIP groove.
Even if the track was burned very straight forward (as usual), the tracking-coils receive the atip background noise.
Seems this problem is inpossible to solve, because we cant eleminate that ATIP, but wait:
If we can manipulate - modulate the tracking-coils, we can burn the whole track “off center”! It should be possible to shift the burned pits slightly left or right “off track”, or better, “off wobble”.
Until now we have no experiences how “thick” that atip background noise is, but it should be possible to find this out. There must be some “wobble free” region inbetween the pregrooves. If we can adjust the tracking-coils in a fashion that the burning laser-beam will get deflected out of center, out of wobble-area, the final created track will not cause any 22khz signals!
btw, if we adjust that track “right beneath wobble”, we can easily turn on-off wobble just by some very little deflection correction pulses (which would move the burning laser for a very short time into the wobble area).
So far the theory! Until anybody in this world can access those “features”, we would need really alot informations, experiments and insider-hardware-knowledge.
We can start to find out how exactly tracking-coils work, in what way the burners hardware interacts with them and steers those coils.
Are they really coils at all? If yes, are they affected by some very small electromagnetical field?
What circuits regulate and control the power for those coils? What kind of ultra-short timing we would need for getting track-burning-fluctuations at, perhaps 8x speed?! How we can power one coil stronger than the other?!
If theres a way clearing those questions and finding out how some firmwares have been coded, or better how we can find some specialists who could integrate our discoveries into there burners (firmwares), I’m shure in at least 5 years the wobble (and alot selfboot retrogamers ;-)problems are solved for ever.
I wrote this just for inspiration, 4 the moment all I can do is search the net for “insider-infos” about very technical CD-writing (hardware) stuff, perhaps I could sacrifice one of my CD-DVD writers making some experiments (perhaps doing some trial’n error firmware modifications
I know this topic here is one of the most “impossible thoughts ever” on this forum, but these are the final results of some very long time of checking out how some special protection works. Its the final small and slippery bridge, which could lead us OVER the big sea, where all those modchips diving through. ggg
