    Ok so I just bought five Gamecube games for my son and I to play. When I turn on the games it seems like I lose controller control when the Gamecube game turns on. My Wii controllers just show dark and when I press button on blue lights blink as if nothing happens. So I went out to Ebgames a bought two classic controllers and then tried with the same result.

    I saw one similar post on Amazon forum but the solution of tunring off the controller while the Gamecube is playing. Not sure how I would be able to select the Gamecube option if the I have conrtollers turned off.

    Thanks!

    Exactly what 24forlife said, you have to use gamecube controllers. Their cheap and u can buy them at target, walmart, gamestop, eb games, etc. You can also pick between wireless and wired, wireless being more expensive.

    i was chuckling in my head when i heard this story...

    dont get third party controllers or memory cards... i learned from that mistake (i got a mad catz memory card and i put all my game saves on it, and then it lost all my data... i was so pissed that i went out in the woodshop and banged it with a hammer until there was nothing but little scraps of plastic and metal) mwahahaha.

    but in all seriousness, i hate mad catz and that experience sucked.

    Dude use gamecube controllers those are the only things compatable with gamcube games....Classic controllers are for virtual console games in the wii shop not for game cube games.If i were you id eiather take back the classic controllers or (this is if you can access wii shop) buy some wii points so you can use those classic controllers to play games from past systems like NES super nintendo N64 Sega genisis and some other thing i forgot.There are some good games in the shop like legend of zelda:1 ,link to a past ,and ocarina of time.

    I recommend the Wavebird. You're cordless, shouldn't your gaming controller be cordless too?
