The Game Disc could not be read.


If you have not used the game disc successfully before and it is not scratched it could just be a bad cd and you should attempt to return it for a new one if possible. If it has worked previously you should see if anyone you know has a gamecube you could try it on and see if it works for them. One thing you could try to do is very carefully, take an ear cleaner and gently rub it over the small circular glass reader to clean away any minute residue. Some game discs are just more finicky than others. And as always with older game systems there is the tried and true technique of just turning the system off and on until it works.

The game disk could not be read.


It sounds like the disc reader is dirty, it's the little clear circle right under where a disc would go, closest to the back of the unit.
To clean, open disc cover, locate the disc reader, use a dry soft towel or some toilet paper and gently wipe it off, sometimes even a little dust can cause a problem. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, then either the disc is scratched or the Game Cube has something wrong with it.
hope this helps!

Disc can not be read


First off invest in a can of dust off and dust it out through the vents. Take isopropal alcohol (from walmart or anywhere) and a Q-Tip and clean the laser beam that shoots at the CD. I have revived many dead PS2 units when everyone else couldn't not get them to work. Works 75% of the time. Was the disc left in the direct sunlight? Sunlight damages the discs. Hopefully that workds for you and will keep your game cube running for a lot longer!

Games initial load before Play Starts receive error 'cannot read disk see instruction manual'


If this happens for only some games, you should try cleaning the discs with a disc cleaner. Otherwise, you could try asking around at stores like circuit city, radioshack, best buy, etc. for what you could use to clean the lens, the part that reads the disc in your gamecube. If that doesn't work, chances are that the lens is damaged and your only hope is to send it in for repairs or get a new gamecube (or Wii).

GameCube Problems


If this problem occurs for every game you try, every time, then it is most likely a hardware failure, and you will indeed need to contact Nintendo for repair information. If it's only certain games, or only some of the time, then make sure the controllers and memory card(s) are securely inserted, the game disc is clean, the laser lens that reads the disc is clean, and that the disc area is free of dust and dirt.
