Right every few years the lense moves ever so slightly until it cant read the dis anymore to fix this you must check to see if the disc holder is wobbly if so you need to push it pack as far as you can and try your disc again it is a common problem but the lense and disc holder has to be egzactly perfect. thankyou

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.

I put my gamecube game in and it says cant read


Well it could either mean 2 problems like if the disc;s are dirty like if they have finger prints on them clean with cool water and a soft cloth and wipe slowly and no useing a circle motion to clean them.
Or if the disc;s are scratched at a point were the gamecube can't read them that well that message will occur then.

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!

Game cube is saying disc cannot be read


i have had this problem myself. if the game played normally up to the time you were told the disc could not be read, then take out the disc and clean it off. you would be amazed how easily dust and interfer with the normal disc operation. i hope this helps.

It wont read


when was the last time you cleaned the GameCube? Perhaps the laser is dirty and can't read your disc.  Also It check that there are no scratches on the disc itself.

My gamecube wont read my game disc


Its either the game disc or the lens of the gamecube. Try cleaning the disk or try another disc. If the cube still doesn't read the disk your lens is probably scratched in which case you would need a new gamecube.

My gamecube problems.


If the disc does not spin or spins strangely, it is almost always because the gamecube is having problems reading the disc, and not a problem with the motor. The laser can be adjusted to a higher power, but you will need several special tools to do so. You should be able to find a guide by googling for gamecube laser adjust. If that doesn't solve the problem, you either need to replace the laser or the laser control board.

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).

You may have to adjust the POT of the GameCube lens... The POT is basically the power and spread the lens uses to read discs... the problem is, over a long period of time, the POT figure drops down, and if it drops too low, you will need to replace the lens.. The machine could still be salvageable, and play games and load them faster than before if you adjust the POT on the machine.. Here is a guide on what is required to open up the machine and do it, if you feel it necessary.... http://modthatcube.pxn-os.com/content/pot.htm
