    Can anyone help me [I'm new btw so hi everyone!]? I bought Metroid Prime for my gamecube a while ago and randomly and quite often when playing it, a message appears on the screen saying the dics cannot be read. I can still keep playing where I left off [i just have to take out the dics and put it back in] but it happens so often and its so annoying. I'm sure its not just the game as I borrowed my friends copy of Metroid Prime and the problem is just the same. In fact it happened once on one of my other games! Anyone have this problem?

    If you want to save the tenner for a nice N64 download etc you could just wait 'till the wii is out, as it plays Gc discs. And if your wii doesnt work...

    No... i dont want to think about it...

    Heh thanks guys. If the wiping etc. doesn't make a difference I suppose I could find a really cheap brand new Metroid somewhere and use it on Wii and hopefully should work perfectly. I suppose by the time I complete that and Metroid Prime 2, Corruptions will be cheap as well

    dont expect wii games to go as cheap as gamecube games any time soon. no-one was buying gamecube so they reduced the price.

    i have this problem too
    its most likely the gamecube and not the discs my i buy brand new games and it does this
    =/
    soooo really i just get over it and dont mind it, but i have gotten really mad at it especially when you get far in a game and havn't saved....
    but im just waiting until a few days before the wii comes out and then im selling mine, so im just gonna wait it out for now

    so my suggestion is that if you really want a new gamecube then go sell your old one then buy a new one or something
    thats what i would do
    *shrugs*
