KOS does not support reading GD-ROM media -- it only supports reading CDs in the drive.

is this a techincal decision or just missing functionality?

its nicer to have homebrew as truncated gdi, skipping boot+license screen and loading directly into it is a huge bonus for gdemu owners.

It was designed that way on purpose, and has always been that way.

That's why even early versions of the Sylverant PSO Patcher (which used KOS) have their own disc access code to read the 1ST_READ.BIN file off a GD-ROM.
