I just managed to get Super Mario Sunshine running on my GC off a backup Verbatim disc :yaynds:

Now Im kinda paranoid that my disc laser will die before my SD Adapter even makes it from ebay

Long time as in years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds, nanoseconds?

Could be years, could be months.
Could also be that as soon as you dump in a retail game that the laser decides to kick the bucket.

Don't worry about it to much tho.
Mine has had a lot of use (retail discs and later on backups thanks to the XenoGC) and it still plays games.
It just slowly degrades over time, POT tweaking it a TINY bit already solves much of the issues.
