Mkhodor: Okay, if you say the reverse spindle is inaccurate, I'll take your word for it. I have never found any good data one way or another. I do know it's an 80mm disc, same as the usual small form factor optical disc. Do you know if the disc has the same optical characteristics as a DVD? That should make it a regular 80mm DVD and it seems that I should be able to read the raw sectors in a standard DVD-ROM drive. However, I can not seem to do this. --Multimedia Mike 02:01, 7 June 2006 (EDT)

You can do that with dome dvd readers. --Merbanan 04:46, 7 June 2006 (EDT)
What's a dome DVD reader? --Multimedia Mike 09:40, 7 June 2006 (EDT)
My 2 cents: The old "rumor" Mkhodor may have been thinking of is the rumor that gamecube disks spin counterclockwise instead of clockwise. It's easy to verify this is false, and my guess is that he incorrectly assumed this is what you meant by "spindle". Snacky 10:37, 9 June 2006 (EDT)
