    Yesterday I was thinking. I made a sorta flowchart for disc reading for the Wii. Could someone correct me if I'm wrong?

    nobody is going to be able to explain it all to you in a way that you can understand. and youre definitely not gonna fit it on a flowchart that small. this is just the dvd init and the open partition functions. theres lots more than just those.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Gambia, The
    The least you have to do is to seperate everything by the device it's running on, ppc, arm or dvd-drive. And i don't think that inserting the disc does something, the system menu sees that a disc was inserted and then reacts.
