Yes yes, I've had the disc since December, and about a week ago, I started Majora's Mask on it. I've played the game for N64, so I knew pretty much what to do...
However, there's one problem. About an hour after I started playing, the game froze. I got angry and started again. A few days later, same thing happened. Today, I'm fighting Twinmold in the Stone Tower/Temple, and the game freezes during the cinema of Twinmold dying. Now I have to start all over in the temple since I didn't save in it.
Now the real problem is, you can't really save the game anytime you want. (If you haven't played the game ever, I'll explain.) To save, you need to play the Song of Time and go back to the first day, but doing this in the middle of a dungeon resets the dungeon, which is why I didn't save at all in the dungeon. Now, I have never had my Gamecube freeze on me ever before this, and it only happens while playing Majora's Mask.

Has this happened to anyone else playing the Collector's Edition Disc?

my pathetic attempts at humor are fleeting

Tsk tsk tsk, how could Nintendo do such a thing...

Ah well. Ocarina of Time is better in that you can save at will. Personally, Majora's Mask was way too easy.

Wow, you guys must never leave the house!  I've had Majora's Mask for over a year, and I'm just passed the swamp palace.

Must never leave the house? You realize it has taken you a year to get about 5-6 (max) hours into the game?

I haven't had it freeze, but the framerate is unbearably slow in progressive scan mode (the main thing I wanted it for)...

Eh, I'd love to play something in Progressive Scan Mode but I don't have the technology in my house for that.

Ugh, I hate it when the game freezes. The N64 Cartridge froze on me twice in the same room in the Great Bay Temple once.

Uh, yeah....
