    In case your Wii memory gets corrupted....then you need to repair it.

    No, not as far as I know. if i'm correct it is strictly for repairing a corrupted Wii's Internal memory.

    No, I suppose it would not. I guess it is a good idea, kind of like defragmenting a computers hard drive once a month or so.

    Wii Format will change your Wii Code every time you Format Btw
    Wii Format is useful when you got corrupted Data but you shouldn't use it that much unless your like a new game addict every time lol

    Well...

    well the formatting option in the wii was made that incase your wii ever gets a save(s) corrupted you could just re-format the wii and erase the stuff on the hardrive thats corrupted. Now i recommend that you format your wii once a year or every November 19, but remember to back-up what you can on to an SD card so you dont lose your important saves.

    Wii format would also be good if your going to sell your wii that way the new owner doesnt have anything on it

    Don't you lose all your VC games/ rights to re download them if you format your memory?
