That's the disc not your cube.

Actually it could be your lens if you touch it to much it wont read anything it happened to my freind his little bro. kept touching the lens.

That's the disc not your cube.
its more than likely the lens, aerlias got the same error untill he bought a new gc

it just might not be the lens at all.....it could even be the motor that turns the CD....mine blew out (not literally) and now the disk doesn't turn....which pretty well makes the whole thing completely useless. It still could be the lens, but a simple cleaning job could clear that up.

Too bad dude, good luck with cleaning the lens! :D

If I were you I'd call Nitendo Customer support. When I bought my Game Boy Advance, a few months later it wouldn't read games. I called and found out that the SP has two processors. One for old Game Boy games and one for advance games. The processors for Game Boy advance games was damage and needed replaced so I sent it in and they repaired it for free because I was still under warranty. They even pay for S&H.

My point is it wouldn't hurt calling customer support!

All they'll need is your serial number which is on the bottom of the cube. Plus my gamecube is way older. I bought it the day it came out. That's right 12:30am when there were 3 left. Anyways call and let me know what they say. I still think it's your disc. And I'm pretty sure that's what they'll tell you unless they know something that I don't. But hell, then again, I've taken my gamecube apart and put it back together so many times lol.

That's why I bought my new platinum cube, I didn't want to start having problems like that with my old indigo cube which I had since Dec 2001.

Come to think of it, the same thing happened to me with Zelda:WW, I cleaned the disc with a little water and it all turned out ok.
