Now teh way the copy protection works and how the CD drive controller functions is truly cracked.
There is no reason it cannot be done as well for the CD32.
Moreover there is no copy protection there and TonI probably knows enough to at least give a few starting hints to whoever would be interested and competent enough.

The problem being that getting competent and motivated people to be interested by the CD32 is quite a challenge. It does not have the mystique of the Saturn.
