- Not on a unmodified GameCube. The GameCube, as shipped, reads no CDs/DVDs. There is no way to produce a GameCube compatible optical media using unmodified CD/DVD burners.
+ Yes, with the help of a volatile firmware extension as the DVD Interface driver currently does. This extension makes the GameCube DVD drive interoperable with DVD-R media as of today. The firmware extensions are not permanent and disappear as soon as the drive is reset.
