The reason why it doesnt reconize it is that the slot eithier has been pluged or the wires may have been mixed up.....or maybe ...Did you buy the controller in a pawn shop??? If you did the saler gave you a rip off....Otherwise id suggest you go to costomer survice.....

You can either replace the joystick controller module if you are handy with soldering, or you can send/take it to a repair shop and they will do it. Those are the only two ways to fixing a loose gamecube controller.
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.
Original controller as in the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller? The NES controller is not officially supported on the Wii, however an adapter exists that goes into the GameCube controller ports which can be purchased at RetroPort. The other control methods the game supports are Wiimote (turned on it's side which acts just like a NES controller), GameCube controller, and the Classic Controller. Hope this helps!
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.
Assuming the Wii unit is situated vertically, look on the top of the unit. There should be two flaps. Lift them, and you will find plugs for four GameCube controllers and two GameCube memory cards. Plug in the controllers and go.
Bare in mind that only a very small number of Wii games actually use GameCube controllers. The controller slots are primarily for playing GameCube games on the Wii, which the Wii can do right out of the box, provided you have the controllers and memory cards.
The obvious answer to this would be.
That the gamecube controller, is faulty.
Or the controllers port on the Wii, is faulty.
Try using a different Controller on the Wii.
Or try inserting the gamecube controller, Into a different Port.
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.
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.
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.
