This wikiHow teaches you how to play games made for Nintendo's discontinued GameCube system on Wii consoles made before November 2011. Wii consoles made after November 2011 do not have ports for GameCube controllers and cannot play the Gamecube discs.

Steps

Step 4. Insert a memory card

To be able to save your progress in GameCube games, insert up to two memory cards into the slots to the left of the GameCube controller slots.

  • You have to buy the memory cards separately and a GameCube memory card is not the same as an SD card. You also need to open a separate cover to access the memory card slots. The separate cover is located right next to the cover of the GameCube controller.
  • This step is optional. You can play the game without a memory card, but your progress will be lost when you eject the disc.

Step 5. Insert a GameCube disc into the slot

The labeled side should face to the right, away from the side of the console containing the buttons and memory slots.
