    Parallel cables can be plugged in while a computer is running, we used to do it all the time with printers or null modem cables.

    I'd suggest the Wii should off before plugging it in, but you shouldn't have to shut down your PC.

    The only external connectors on a motherboard that really require you to shut down the pc is PS2 ports, you won't fry anything plugging them in while running though, they just won't do anything.

    That is very odd that they would use a parallel port, I figure at least USB or Firewire to eliminate any possible lag time. We will have to see how this developes after awhile.

    Currently own: Wii Sports, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves

    Live in Chicagoland? Lets trade.

    I've been in the computer world for twenty years. I to have hot-plugged lots of parallel connections. I to have never had any problems.

    However, I know FOUR people who have shorted out motherboards and printers at least ten times.

    Rule of life: Just because it hasn't happened to you, doesn't mean you should do it. OR tell other people that it can't hurt or cause a problem.
