    How does the Wii read games off of a USB drive?

    I was wondering about the technical side to it. Can anyone explain? When I install a cIOS, does it install to the Wii itself or is it still on my memory card and the Wii is reading it from there? Do games that play off a hard drive "read" cIOS? Does hacking the Wii make the Wii read the cIOS files instead of the IOS files? Sorry if these are newb questions. I just want to know more about how it actually works.

    the cios is installed onto your wii. The loaders utilize that cios to get your wii to read the usb drive and play the games.
