How the Sega Dreamcast Copy Protection Worked - And how it Failed | MVG

Did you know that the Sega Dreamcast had very sophisticated copy protection? I didn't either. But its true. The Dreamcast had excellent security measures in place. With the custom GD-ROM format that was not readable by any consumer PC CD and DVD drives at the time it seemed that the Dreamcast would be safe from haackers. That is until one fatal mistake caused the complete breakdown of the security measures. And ultimately some say was part of the cause for the demise of the Sega Dreamcast.

Mystery eBay boxes. They're a thing. Well how about a mystery eBay beige PC BOX? Now, that's what I'm talking about. This is a 1990s IBM PC Compatible, I purchased from eBay for £56.

So let's explore and unearth the shocking contents of this retro PC. ** For exclusive videos, mystery boxes and other rewards, please consider supporting me at; https://www.patreon.com/nostalgianerd?ty=h ** ☟Sharing☟ If you wish to share this video in forums, social media, on your website, *please do so*!

Installing a Raspberry Pi inside the PlayStation Classic

In this video, I show you the method I came up with to cleanly install a Raspberry Pi 3 inside the PlayStation Classic! I decided to do this mod because I love the way the PlayStation Classic looks, but hate its terrible emulation performance and game selection. Now that I have a Raspberry Pi 3 inside of it, not only do I get the great looks of the PlayStation Classic shell, but also great emulation performance and way more games! I currently have about 350 games on my 512GB micro SD card, with 259GB of free space left! Pre-Configured Retropie image and wiring diagram are available on my website! http://www.retrocution.com/2019/01/02/playstation-classic-retropie-image-and-wiring-diagram/ PlayStation Classic: https://amzn.to/2R5S0kj Raspberry Pi 3 B+: https://amzn.to/2CM9ud2 Best Power Adapter for the Pi 3 B+: https://amzn.to/2BUsrsd HDMI adapter used: https://amzn.to/2SADu0W Mini Table Saw: https://amzn.to/2CKM9sb (I bought mine on ebay for a few dollars less, but this one comes with extra accessories like a drill chuck) Great article from Adafruit about removing the ports on the Pi : https://learn.adafruit.com/diet-raspberry-pi/steps UPDATE: At 20:50 when I talk about the momentary switches being grounded without being pressed, what I actually believe is going on is that the 5V connection from the Pi going to the USB ports on the PS Classic board is flowing back through the PS Classic board and causing the top 2 pads of the momentary switches to receive 5V and causing them to trigger their scripts without actually pressing the button. You should be able to just cut the 5V trace from each USB port on the PS Classic board to eliminate the issue. This is something I didn't realize at the time because I was pre-occupied with filming the video. Thank you and good luck if you try this mod!

DVD: The Death Knell of Laserdisc

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below Well, it had a good run. Although Laserdisc could never really get off the ground, it had a reasonable showing in the high end video market. Intended as a mass market product, Laserdisc would never get there. But DVD... well that's a whole other story. In 7 or 8 years, DVD went from being introduced to being everywhere, and it is still selling pretty well in the face of streaming services such as Netflix. Just how long DVD can cling to life remains to be seen, but you can still stroll on into any big box store and pick up a DVD player and some movies to go with it. This video tells how DVD got started, and why it was able to succeed where Laserdisc failed. The clips used in this video are the property of their respective owners.

The original PlayStation is a pretty neat thing. Using the CD as a storage medium was a smart move. But, Sony needed to add anti-piracy features to the disc to prevent miscreants from making bootleg copies of Crash Bandicoot. This video tells the story of how that works, why it wasn’t infallible, and also proposes a potentially impervious solution (24 years late, though).

Here’s that paper on reading optical discs. It’s a good read:
