    I used to own a GameCube, but I gave it away since I now have a Wii. I've played GameCube games on my Wii in the past, but it was literally years ago.

    Recently, I found a fairly rare GameCube game I've wanted for a while, and I sat down to play it, but it wouldn't work. I then tested my other GameCube games which I knew worked on my Wii previously, and none of them work anymore.

    Basically, I go to start the GameCube game, and then I simply get a black screen. I have to give the system a hard shutdown to use it again. Has anyone else had this issue? Is there anything I can do, or do I need to look for cheap GameCubes on eBay?

    Have you changed anything about the wii after last playing the last GameCube game?

    Im also interested in knowing what this "Rare" game is

    Nothing special. I've probably applied an update or two since then, but I didn't do anything else to it.

    It's Chibo-Robo. I started looking for it at used game stores a few years ago. I finally found it.

    Maybe flip the discs. Might be inserting in the wrong way.

    that sucks hard ... but look around and you might find a used gc for 10 bucks.
