Playing Metroid Prime 3 on the weekends here and I confess it is taking me quite a few weekends. I keep getting "the disk cannot be read" and I am just removing the disk, wiping it and trying again. Today I went to source forge and downloaded info recorder. The newly burned copy works just fine. I have no clue how that disk got so scratched up. You know though, Nintendo should take better care of its paying customers. You should be able to get a new copy of a game that you scratched, melted, pummeled or lost.
