What would be the best and safest (or proper) way to eject a game from your Wii when done or just want to change games? Should you hit reset and eject or reset turn system off and eject? I think reset and eject is fine and shouldn't do damage to the system but my Wii gamer seems to think other wise. Not that he is wise but confused as to which method is best for the overall longevity of his Wii console. Can anyone out there ease his troubled little mind? THANKS!!!!

What i do is return to the Wii menu, and then eject it :P Why the hell is someone resetting the console? It makes no sense to reset to eject a disc. Your buddy has been playing too many games

I do what Rashiki suggested. Also, since they aren't cartridge games it's safe to remove them at any point and time.

Thanks' I'll let him know. When playing a gamecube game in a Wii you cant access the Wii menu, it must be ejected by other means. I guess I get to tell him I told you so. Thanks again!!!

To access the Wii menu just lick the Home button on the Wiimote.
