it was possible, with a custom firmware on a certain model samsung drive, me and my brother done it a long time ago.
as for the disk spinning backwards.. thats bullshit. iv heard that about gamecube discs too, and they dont either lol.
someone just correctley stated the game data is on the second layer of the disc as is the real toc. the firmware was spread on this very site, so i can confirm it is real, and the game data is on the second layer od the disc, and all originals are dual layered.
EDIT :also, with some hardware modding and a diffrent firmware that same pc samsung drive could replace the drive in the xbox and have full functionality
