Probably not since,
1. Minidiscs are in a plastic shell, and the GCN games aren't
2. I dont think it has another laser for the Mini discs, just for the DVD

if you wanted to play music CDs the GameCube would need 2 lasers, one for DVD and one for CD (unless they used newer more expensive single-laser technology which probably isn't even fully developed yet). Since the GC was only designed to play DVD game discs cut down in size, I don't see why Nintendo would put a CD laser in there.

I'm not entirely sure if thats possible.

#1 GCN won't have a BIOS CD player
#2 The drive can read it but GCN's MDVD read areas are in different proportions to a standard 8CM CD-ROM
#3 The thumbhole in GCN's MDVD's are larger than a standard 8CM CD-ROM's.

The Matsushita(Panasonic in the US)version of GCN supports all open source media formats.
