    I've had the Wii since christmas and only played it with the GF, but we are going to hers tonight for a party and i want to take my Wii.

    Is it best to eject the game from it for transportation, or leave it in.

    Is there anything else i sould be doing when carrying around?

    OR anything i sould be doing at a party to stop it getting wrecked?

    Cheers

    I'd definitely take the disk out. To ensure it doesn't get wrecked at a party, keep it in the car!!

    I packed away the Wii last night to take it round to my friends house to have a New year eve party.

    Man, i never thought that i would be playing Tennis on new years eve :thumbsup:

    His kids loved it and it certainly made for a great night of entertainment.

    Anyway, yeah i would take any disks out and just package it up as best you can in the original box.

    I would remove the disc, just for peace of mind. I took my Wii round to a mates house last night and carefully wrapped it in a clean tea towel before placing it in my gaming bag to stop it getting scratched :geek: :D

    I left a disc in and transported it all in a laptop bag. All worked OK at the other end, but I guess you should take the disc out really.

    To stop it being wrecked I guess that you just have to instruct people how to use it properly and keep it away from very young children.

    Eject it !! Much much safer

    Use the Wii laying horizontally without the stand. Much more stable and it was designed to work either way.

    normally id leave disc in if theres one in, but as its a new mechanism with no paperclip eject i wouldnt risk it.

    as for transport i used a tescos bag "every little helps" :thumbsup:

    I honestly can't believe someone is asking how to transport a Wii to someone elses house safely. [​IMG]

    Kiss it! :mad:

    I am asking a decent question.

    I didn't know whether to keep the cd in or not. As i did not open it originally.

    Like someone said " it could of scratched the disk.

    So don't bother replying if you have nothing constructive to say. :suicide:

    Cas I bought one for my nephews who are six and four and they love the wii...I initially had to keep making sure they put the wrist straps on but once I had hammered that home I've never seen them have so much fun....Shame they took it away with them :( :(

    That's not a bad age - was more thinking of 1-3 year olds who just tend to pick things up and drop them or bash them into stuff :D. I played it on Boxing day with some nephews who are 3-5 age and they struggled on a few games but seemed to like some of the ones on Wii Play and Rayman. Had a friends daughter over the other night though and she is only 2. Disn't let her actually play but she held a nunckuk whilst an adult actually played the game in the background. She did tend to drop/throw the nunchuk at the floor a couple of times but it survived!
