I was taking a bath (my body was aching, ALRIGHT!?  I needed to soak...), and after surfing the web on my PSP I swivled around and out of the tub.  I use this Loco Roco pouch, which isn't the greatest for holding my UMD games and when I turn around to unplug the plug-thing, I see a UMD floating in the water.  It's Metal Gear Ac!Dē and it's floating there.  I quickly snatch it, get all the water out of it, and place it back in my case, hoping it'll dry off and work fine.

MY QUESTION IS, is it going to work?

Yes, it should work fine, just make sure its COMPLETELY dried off before you try to play it.

I voted YES, it will be OK!  thumbsup

So in the future, if you need a place to stash your UMD, just pop it into your mouth and dry it out later.

NO don't do that!!  icon_surprised

 Sorry, I couldn`t help but get a kick out of the post title, Even though I would be extremely pissed about that! I would also assume, if it was COMPLETELY DRYthat it would be fine.

Hey after whoevers DS went in a hotub and worked and my Sony Ericsson cell phone falling down into a large barrell of water then me letting it air dry and it working.

A little UMD should work ust fine.

I've ran a ps1 game over with a car and played extreme sports with it, (like soccer with a disk), and it still worked.

Just out of curiosity, what would happen if you dropped a DS game into the bathtub?

You can soak a DS (with a game in it) in a hot tub, and it'll still work  icon_biggrin
