    the Wode sends signals to the DVD drive. Its sort of a Daemon-tools for the Wii. But with a hardware addon.

    Read that WODE support also ext2/ext3, so i assume there is linux inside.

    Yup, WODE is built on Linux. It supports FAT32, NTFS, WBFS, HFS+, and EXT2/3. (Ripping will arrive for FAT32 and EXT2/3 first, then WBFS, by the way.)

    I'm not a WODE user (yet), but I can tell you that the WODE turns on with your Wii (it's USB-powered).

    The WODE is powered from the drive power and will turn on and off with the Wii, the USB is used for the LCD backlight aswell as power to connected drive.
    The WODE will mount an ISO as if a disc is inserted. http://www.wodejukebox.org
