Try using a Q-Tip dipped in some alcohol and gently and I mean GENTLY swabbing it across the lens of the reader on the gamecube. let it dry for a few seconds and try it again... Try it 2-3 times if it still doesn't work try a different game. If another game works then it's the disc that's the problem.

I would suggest cleaning the lens firstly. Use some rubbing alcohol and a qtip, clean the lens inside the disc slot and then use another qtip to clean out all of the other nooks and crannies in the slot. I would also suggest hitting it with a couple blasts of canned air. This video gives you a good idea of what you need to do:

My gamecube does not spin the discs that i put into it and does not read them. Is there something i can do to fix this without having to buy a new one?


One time I ccidently touched the lens in my 10 year old gamecube so now the lens and the laser dont read the discs anymore because it is knocked out of anglement so you could buy a new gamecube now or buy a wii because wii's can still play gamecube disc's too.

My disc wont play on my gamecube, its not my gamecube because it plays other games but the disc plays on my wii.


I have the same problem. The Wii has a better lazer eye on it that can read through more scratches and gunk and smudges and stuff than a gamecube. The gamecubes lazer is alot weaker and more touchy and more likely not to play a scratched disc than a Wii would..

Doesn't Read Disc


I had the same problem. Just wipe the laser lens with a smooth cloth.

Gamecube Recognizes what game the disc is, but cannot read it


Make sure its in the right way (image facing up) then close the lid and press power button it should load the game up automatically (dont hold a after switching on the gamecube. if it persists take out the disc wipe it again blow on the gamecube to remove and dust then try switching on the gamecube without the disc it should show the menu, press up and there should be a question mark, insert disc, there it should show the game, press 'A' to confirm, then press start if it persists it is recommended you get it checked out because it could be the case that the disc is badly written like my lego starwars 3 on one of the levels it goes wierd and it spoils it really (i think there is a problem with all starwars games personally). Anyway Hope i helped as much as i could.

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.
