Re: Disc spins excessively fast and program won't start
Take a can of air and blow some air gently into it. Could be a dust problem on the laser. After this then try and load the game again, if it doesn't work still, then its a weak laser and you'll have to get the drive replaced

spin up 1 then the laser will scan (you will know it when
you hear it)2 then high speed spin up and load start screen.
brief spin up and then nothing is normally a week laser.
laser are cheap and not hard to install yourself.
if it spins up , laser scans and long pause 10sec or so
after witch then it says open tray.in this case you will likley
need a drive replacement .This will require some soldering
skill and may be better left to a reputable repair shop.
Sounds like you need the Gamecube sensor switch replaced. That is a small door device for detecting when the Gamecube DVD door or lid is closed allowing disc initiation to begin. When your Gamecube doesn't detect disk at all and simply continues the message: "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC," this is the problem. You can test this by inserting a game disc, opening the Gamecube door, and then closing it. If the message "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC" remains unchanged, and there is no spinning of the disk, then your GameCube lid closed door sensor is probably broken and should be replaced. You can search Google for Part GCPT032, or for GameCube Lid Closed Door Sensor.
An easy fix if you know how to open the Cube. It's cable simply plugs in, and it is held by one tiny screw.
I think the only option for you is buy a replacement drive off ebay (you want the same model doesnt matter about the FW version) swap the PCB of the drives over so the new one has your old PCB. The same thing happened to me but when I lubed the spindle the grinding noise went away for a week at a time, so I got fed up of constantly lubing it and bought a new one off ebay and swapped the PCB worked brilliant ever since. Hope this helps.
