Hello everyone, This is my first post I was browsing the net and I came across a post on a forum which claimed that you can backup GC games if you had nero 6, and a miniDVD-R (and a DVD burner ofcourse). This guy said that if you burn a GC image on a miniDVD, you won't need any mod chip and you can directly play the burnt miniDVD on the GC console with no mods at all. I downloaded a GC image off the net, and when I opened it, it turned out to be a .gcm format. Is there anyway for me to burn this image and play it on my console without using any mods or a PC network?

You can simply rename the extension to *.ISO and Nero will burn it fine, however the Game cube cannot read a burnt DVD, or any other kind or writable media.

There is no way to play burnt game cube games, period.

The game cube uses its own hybrid DVD format, and as of this post there is no way of duplicating it. You can play game backups via the PSO exploit and a broadband adapter, but thats it.
