How To Burn Gamecube Games

by burniso on February 22, 2012

The old classic Gamecube console is a true blessing to many gaming enthusiasts, with its excellent features and the hours of fun it provides. But don’t forget that all the fun of the Gamecube comes from the games which you play on it. These games don’t come cheap though; we all know how much they cost. So it’s only rational that you take good care of your discs.

However, even with the best care, accidents happen, and discs also get damaged after lots of use. When this happens, you will need to get another copy of the game, and that can really put a hole in the pocket after a couple of times! So instead, why not make backup copies of your games?

This guide will show you how to burn a mini-dvd-r to run on a modded gamecube.

Firstly download and install Imgburn. It’s totally free! You can get the latest version here. After running it for the first time, you will see a screen much like this:

You can turn the log off if you wish by going under “view”. To burn your image, select “write image file to disc”

NOTE – The image file you have may be a gcm file. Imgburn should handle this format, however, if you have any problems you can simply rename it to a .iso file.

Next, select the image you wish to burn (1). Make sure the burner you wish to use is selected under “destination”. Change the write speed to 1x (2) and select how many copies you want. “Verify” is NOT necessary. Finally, press write (3) In 20 minutes or so you should have a shiny new backup for your gamecube.

Happy gaming!
