I had this same problem, its just a issue with the disk driver hand (Its the hand that pulls GC disk and Wii disk into the disk holder) to fix pick up the wii, tilt it upright (to where the back of the wii (where the USB ports are)) is facing the ground and the disk slot is facing the ceiling. Simply put the disk in the console and gravity should do the rest. Also the disk will eject really easily so don't worry about the disk getting stuck inside of the console.
Well we think that the motor inside of the console that spins the disc's is shot now so you should buy a wii because wii's are better than gamecubes are and you can still play gamecube games on a wii too. Because i play gc games on a wii then.
I had the same "Cannot play" problem - happened suddenly, I don't think I was doing anything unruly at the time.
After checking repair (exchange) prices in excess of $250 from Sony, I decided to open the cover to see if I could see anything wrong - normally a futile exercise with electronics except that in the past I have cleared errant disks that have lodged themselves near the drive/player at the rear of the library.
Upon opening and watching the library try to load and play I noticed the drive itself was not spinning the disk once loaded. It would sit for awhile, thinking about it I'm sure, then would unload and load the next dvd, again failing to spin.
I thought okay, maybe try to spin the dvd while in the player to see if it's jammed or otherwise hard to turn. It was not hard to turn and spun freely. In fact, when I put my finger through the hole at the exposed side of the player at the hub to spin the dvd, clockwise, it suddenly started to spin - and play!
I put the whole thing back together to test and all seems to be working fine at this point. Not sure what would cause the motor to stop spinning and remain in that state through poweroff/on cycles etc. but I'm sure this is not the last time I will have trouble of this kind.
I would note that when replacing the library back in its home on the shelf, be careful not to tip the library, especially toward the player area because the disks will spill out of the carousel near the player and become jammed when you power it on and attempt to load. A final tip of the library away from the player area may clear this if you hear the disks rolling out of their slots and you don't want to open the top again (it's a darned heavy box when fully loaded).
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....
Are there any stickers on the CD? these disks spin at high revolutions at first then they spin down and run at a constant speed. At first its trying to find the start and end of the disk and any information on it that it can give you about the disk. If the balance is not good it can warble the lens so it cant focus on the info.
There are 2 sides of the CD and DVD one usualy has a lable with the title and a picture, the other side is the data side. The data side should always be down and you should look at it in good light to see if there is any finger prints on it or anything stuck to the bottom. I know it sounds dumb but its easy to sit it on somthing and it pick up tape, a sticker, a price tag anything and you are unaware of it.
