    it's impossible to copy cause the purpose is copy protection, duh.

    look at the outter ring of a saturn cd. read text.

    now think about it.. how many burners have you seen that can burn actual text into a cd?

    ...

    exactly.

    Now if only Sega had included that same protection into Dreamcast games in addition to the proprietary GD-ROM format.

    The bootstrap area of a Saturn game is where ISO 9660 says it should be: in the first 16 sectors (32KB) of the filesystem. It's not impossible to copy at all.
