that's strange...you might have to mod it. GS has links that support modding, so just look for it!!! :P

Try putting them in backwards. You also need a Wii remote and SD card. Just jam it in there somewhere. It might help to put it on its side, too, so it looks more like a lunchbox. Good luck!

I agree. Just cut the wii game disc in half that should play on your gamecube.

Please tell me you're kidding. You're going to have to buy a Gameboy Pocket for a touch screen.

There's a gamecube accessory out there called "Wii" that will allow you to play them. Just hook the "Wii" up to the tv next to your GC and you should be good to go.

  1. The Gamecube is not powerful enough to handle Wii Games
  2. Wii Discs don't fit in the Gamecube

There, I answered your questions.

Just trim down the outer edge of the Wii games. The outer edge just has the opening cut scenes anyway... Nothing you can't live without. Then it should fit well enough to work. Also turn the GC on it side so that the handle is facing left. Now as far as the controllers, I am pretty sure Radio Shack has what you need to convert the Wii controllers to work on the GC. Just ask at the counter- You have questions, they have answers. Don't take any sarcastic comments they may throw at you as truth. The person is probably just new and isn't up to date with all the high tech stuff that's out there. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem actually. Just put the Wii disk into a ziplock bag and hit it with a hammer or against a wall or whatever. Then just dump the contents out into the GC disk holder. It'll take a little longer to load up, but you should be fine. Worked for me.

Even if you get the Wii disks to fit in, you still have to figure out a way to sync the remote. You might have to buy one of those special remote to GC adapter wire things. Thing is, those things are very short and severely limit your movement.

Close the GC and let it break the disk you'll be playing less than half of Super Mario Galaxy in no time.

Man! That was quick. The Dork Squad came right over and fixed me up booyyy! The tech said he used to work for MS before the layoffs, and that this was the only place that would take him? He got it all working and installed what he calls "Custom BSOD". The tech said this feature used to be so popular MS had to stop using it because it jammed up their phone lines with people calling about this feature. Boy, I sure am lucky I called the Goof Squad.8)

step 2. cut the wii disc until it reaches the size of gamecube discs

step 3. discard all remaining pieces

step 4. insert into the gamecube

step 5. enjoy.

well, I think you need a wii remote, and- OH!- I think you need a Wii to play Wii games! Man, GCN is a previous generation console. It wont play wii games. Next thing we know is that you're asking us why your ps2 would play ps3 games.

not all ps3's play ps2 games... so that could be a valid question if he didnt intend to buy one that could play ps2 games and it did somehow

that depends, would you consider her a casual gamer, or a hardcore games? nintendo cant satisfy the hardcore gamer according to sources, but they do wonders for the casual gamer
