    Now, when you format it, it says:

    All added channels and save data will be erased. Once erased, it can ever be recovered. Even channels that have been copied to an SD Card can't be restored. Do you still want to format?

    Now, my question is...

    I transferred all of my Wii saves onto my SD card. And the non transferable ones too. I know I can re-download my games off of the Wii Shop Channel. Will I still be able to put the saves from my SD card, on it again? Even the non transferable ones? Ex. Smash Bros. Brawl.

    Yeah, because it's the only way to fix it. If I send it to Nintendo, they'd have to do the same thing. I'm just confused if I be alloud to transfer all of my save files back.

    Saves are no problem afaik, they can be transferred back (don't take my word on that though).
    Channels on the other hand need to be re-installed (wad manager, shop channel where you'll have to pay again, ...)

    Either way, what are you trying to fix?

    Well, different problems been going on... I have a weird Wii Message Board glitch, Galaxy 2, isn't reading (I know the lens is fine, because I've sent it in to Nintendo twice) right, and along with other things... But according to Nintendo, I can re-download all of my VC games and WiiWare games. Yes, I am aware that I'll have to re-install the HBC again, but that's alright I have it saved on my SD card...

    But if I know that ALL of my saves can go back on there, then... I guess I'll go do it. ...Wish me luck?

    Well, good news. I formatted and everything transferred back just fine. Only minor problem is that I have a new Wii Address Book Code. Other than that, everything's good. Galaxy (2) works again, and it saves. I finally got my Wii Message Board error thing, glitch-free as well...

    Well, off to play Galaxy 2 now! You may close this topic. I think I'm good for now.
