    Learning from my previous experience, I'm planning on bringing my Wii to my friend's house to play Brawl. Are there any precautions to take? Should I take the disc out first? Make sure it reads the disc beforehand (it worked at my house, but not at my friend's)? Any help? Appreciated.

    Nintendo said it.... Use the wrist strap!

    other than this... I wouldn't leave a disk in the drive when traveling... personnaly, I've cracked a disk in my laptop when traveling.

    Probably make sure your Wii is secure while you're traveling with it. It may be that my Wii hit something that caused the GPU to get messed up, which then caused overheating dot artifacting.

    I always wrap my Wii in a towel or shirt when taking it with me somewhere [​IMG]

    take out the disc before traveling. sometimes it jiggles the unsecured modchip wires in a funny way where backups doesnt work. i know this from experience.
