My nintendo gamecube controller won't work in my nintendo wii

I wanted to play a Nintendo GameCube game on my Nintendo Wii, so I put my controller into the slot at the top of the Wii for the GameCube controller and then when I turned on the Wii and it started playing the GameCube game it came to the screen that says you have not inserted a memory card, would you like to continue anyway? and when i hit the up arrow on my remote to say yes it won't move at all like there is no controller in there, but there is. I tried blowing it off to get rid of any dust there might be, but it still didn't work. So then I tried putting in one of the other controllers I have but it didn't work for all four of my controllers.

    It is the controller. But I tried plugging it into all four of the spots on the Nintendo Wii but it won't work. Do you think it is the Wii Console? Should I try and exchange my Wii and get a new one?

Are you talking about the controller or memory card?? If the controller try plugging it into the second gamecube controller slot even if you are wanting it for player one. This is the only way I have been able to get it to work.

    What game are you wanting to play? Is it one that requires a memory card on Gamecube? If that is the case it is probably that it won't let you continue without the gamecube memory card which goes into the other slot inside the door where the controllers plug in. Instead of pressing up have you tried pressing the A button? I'm not convinced it is your console but I could be wrong.

SOURCE: nintendo gamecube wont play games

Since the system was dropped and is obviously in need of professional repair, I would suggest sending it to a Gamecube repair shop. These consoles can be repaired at a reasonable price (as compared to later model game systems) at many reputable shops. A good shop that does this type repair is the NES Repair Shop.

You've only two options. Either have it fixed, or sell it on ebay. Yes, people buy broken Gamecubes for parts, but you won't get much. I would suggest having it fixed. It will provide years of service for a cheap price.

Wii controller won't work with gamecube game in wii console


Gamecube games don't have the proper coding installed on the discs in order to receive commands from the Wiimote. You'll have to have a Gamecube controller to play Gamecube games even on the Wii console.

How do you get the nitendo game cube to play on the wii


The Nintendo Wii already comes with everything needed to play GameCube. GameCube disks are loaded and unloaded from the system in the same way that Wii game disks are used. To play the games you are going to need a GameCube controller and a GameCube memory card to save progress. On the top of the system (if the system is vertical) or on the side (if it is laying down) are two flaps, one which opens to reveal the controller ports and the other reveals the slots for the memory cards. To play GameCube, simply select the top left square from the main menu (like you would for any Wii game), select start, and then use the GameCube controller to play the game.

Will the Nintendo Wii control work with the Game Cube games? I can't find a button to play the game. I am trying to play Ratatouille on the Game Cube with a Wii control.


Well that depends if your trying to play gamecube games on the gamecube or the wii?, i assume your doing it on the wii because anyone would know that a wii control wouldn't work on a gamecube, not impossible, just very hard

wii remotes do work with the nintendo wii on wii games and on gamecube games, but it is better if you use a gamecube controller and plug it into the to holes under the flap, pictured below, hopefully.

Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?


You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
