Any who that's a bit off-topic. The question that I want to know is: Can I dump Gamecube games to my PC, with my Blu-Ray Drive? I got an LG CH10LS20 Blu-Ray ROM Drive. I'm asking this since the Gamecube uses Mini-DVDs which I have never heard of any device outside of the Gamecube using this.
Nope, you sure can't.
There's only a few drives that can read GCN discs. Not only are they mini-DVDs they read from the inside out (reverse) compared to a regular CD.
There is a way you can rip them using the Phantasy Star Online disc, a GCN broadband adapter and a few pieces of homebrew, but I can't really remember the process. If you look up Phantasy Star GCN rip or something like that you might find the process.
