There is nothing insurmountable about reading (on a sector by sector basis) a DVD (non-encypted) on an Iyonix (I've done this using CDFS/MMC calls from some homebrew code and a DVD-ROM reader (a Liteon) and two different DVD writers - a Pika One (1004, a BTC derivative) and an LG GSA-4120B).

I have managed to read a DVD-R (generated on a PC) and copied its data off (reading sector by sector) and wrote the resulting image ON AN IYONIX to a DVD+RW (+RW's are easier as according to the standards they don't require you to set up write mode page parameters and can do background formatting and all sorts of niftiness). The resulting image could be read on a PC.

So please let no one go away here with the notion that there is something inherently deficient in the Iyonix that prevents it from using a DVD Reader (or for that matter Writer) given the appropriate software.
