    OK this thread is just here to get programmers to think about something or to more/less ask for a certain feature in future emulation projects. I think many programmers should think about adding DVD-USB support to emulators. I use it every now and then in ULoader and it has proven to be a valuable feature. This would be totally awesome for the PS1 and Dreamcast emulators, allowing for CD support and maybe true disc back backups. Yes I know many of you would just say that I should just use a Hard Drive or SD card but I'm sure there are plenty of us with lots of disc backups for Dreamcast and PlayStation 1. Would you really want to download or rip all of those games? It's just a thought and this thread will probably be ignored but still, I just had to make my statement.

    The iso9660 library in libogc was recently modified to support any device (rather than just the front disc slot) so this sort of thing is easy to accomplish now.
