This may seem a stupid question, but I need to be sure about something...
I have 3 gamecubes.
2 of them are purple (older ones) and when I insert a disc game I can hear a little beep comming from the drive when the disc is accepted.
If the disc is not accepted (a non gamecube game) the drive motor stops and there is no beep, of course.
The other gamecube I have is black (newer than the other two), and it makes no beep when a disc is accepted. it just boots up normally like a normal pc dvd drive. I purchase this gamecube in 2nd hand. So I want to ask if this could mean a faulty drive. Could this be related to newer drives not featuring this beep while booting?
I like that beep, as I'm used to it. When I was a kid, I learned this sound indicates the dvd is OK!
