I can't find public reports about why a modchip might be possible or impossible for discs. Has anyone done this.
Basically something like this must work.
1: download game to harddisk from original game.
2: at game boot emulate copy protection from disc with modchip

This is only impossible when this data stream is encrypted.

Because it's not as simple as just slapping any random chip onto the board and expecting it to just make the system completely ignore any security measures
