Safe to leave CD in turntable during transport?

Is it safe to leave a CD inside a CDJ-2000 for transport? I've heard you can damage video game consoles by moving them around with discs inside them. Is this different?

Why would you want to? It might be OK and I imagine the laser parks when the unit powers down but why take the chance? Considering the price of this device and that it's a "front-loader" for my $.02, it's not worth the risk.

No. Take it out.

You'll be happier years later when you CDJ still operates, and conversely unhappy that your repair bill would be substantial when it fails.

Because it's a house set that will be moved around a lot by multiple people and always using Serato control CDs. I thought leaving the CDs in might reduce the risk of losing them, but the risk of damaging the decks is way more important. Thank you.

If possible, make back up copies of the CD's for yourself. it takes minutes nowadays.

Yep, good call. I see that USBs work, too. Thank you

No, no, no and no.

I know people who left a disk in a deck just moving it from one room to another in their house and had the disk end up out of the drawer and inside the box somewhere. Lotsa fun disassembling the unit just to get it out.

That's more likely to happen in a multi-disc changer than a single disc tray, but it's still a good idea to remove discs before moving the device. You never know if the disc will end up getting misaligned and cause damage to the device or the disc if it's powered up in that state.
