    You cannot back up VC games... You can back up VC games saves..... When you reformat your Wii, It does not reformat your VC Channel Buys. It will restart the Wii to when you first bought it...but the VC channel will stay the same.

    REMEMBER YOU CANNOT BACK UP FULL VC GAMES..... Only Games Saves

    here is where i am confused. when i was looking at the nintendo.com forums (which are of no help) is say
    "You should format your Wii Shop Channel and Wii console's system memory prior to selling or otherwise transferring your Wii console to any third party. To clear information from the Wii Shop Channel, including records of your transactions and rights to download software"
    i took that to mean giving up the rights to the VC. i do want to format the shop channel because personal info is stored in there

    Yes you should format the VC Shop Channel or else the people would use your money to buy VC games!

    Remember that when you delete your VC channel NOTHING can be returned (Games, Money, etc)

    Yes... Because if you could back up VC games everyone would be sharing it instead of buying it.... You can only save VC games saves

    that makes little sense on why.. (i understand the "pirating" part, not the how come?)

    the wii formats the SD card, would it not put it's own info on it? like say "hey, this SD card belongs here!"

    have you actually tried it?
    i'll try it this evening... off to my sisters to get it back! she borrowed it for like 2 weeks.. i'm going through withdrawl

    Ok, You download the VC games saves to bring it over to a friends house and load your data.

    You cannot bring the whole VC game to there house and play.

    Just trust me, You can try to put VC games on there but It will not work on another Wii...... Game Saves Will

    im pretty sure that you can save the entire game on the sd card, the thing is it only game only works on that particular wii.

    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."
