Disc Read Error

Whenever I play NCAA Football 2005 on my Nintendo GameCube Platinum, I get an error message (Game Disc Could not be Read). This is the only game that does this. What can I do since I can't find the game anywhere to re-buy it?

Error message . to turn off power. call service. will not run game


Well there is a hardware issue with the gamecube that needs to be fixed then. Or you could buy a wii and play gamecube games on a wii like i do instead. Wii's are better than gamecubes are because they both play wii and gamecube disc's too.

When i turn on my gamecube it says an error has occurred and to shut it off and check the instruction booklet for further instructions


  • An Error has occurred:
    If you are getting the specific message, "An error has occurred. Turn the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further instructions." This means there may be an internal problem with the system.
    1. Check Individual Game Disc problems or Multiple Game Disc problems (depending upon how many games exhibit the problem) to see if the cause of the message is a dirty or damaged disc.
    2. If the disc appears fine or works properly in another system, this means there is an internal problem with the system. A repair will need to be set up. Please use our convenient repair options.

    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!

    Unable to read disc error


    If Wii gives Unable to read Disc Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

    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).
