Yeah...hooking your gamecube to your computer via broadband adapter is currently the only way to play a copied game. The gamecube's laser is very different from your normal CD or DVD laser. The CD and DVD drives that we have in our computers read the data that is on the bottom of the disk. The gamecube laser is slightly tilted to read the data that is on the slants of each row of information.
------------- Normal CD or DVD
/\/\/\/\/\/\ Gamecube disk
There is no way that a CD or any type DVD drive that is currently available for PC or Mac can read a Gamecube disk. The computer's laser tries to read data from the bottom of the gamecube disk, but there is no data there. Its all on the slants.
