If you reformat the SD card you will not lose any of the software that is on the system. None of that data is stored into the SD card. The only thing that you can save to the SD card are pictures and you can back up you downloaded games onto it. Any software you have downloaded or came on the system will be completely unaffected if you reformat the SD card. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi anna21,

Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.

1. Put the SD Card in your Card Reader.
2. Connect it to your PC.
3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory.
5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it.
6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty.
9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card.
10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Rate me if this helps so I can help others. Thanks for using Fixya.

Son accidentally cleared unlocked tracks and character on his mario kart license. is there a was to retrieve them w/o having to go through unlocking them again?


Im sorry but once its deleted its over .. but u can unlock all the progress by downloading a pre saved save game for example these save files: http://www.wiisave.com/?cid=197 ..... u put them on an SD card like this..(Root Sd)/private/wii/(the save)..

finally to transfer from Sd to wii :

On the home menu, go select "wii" and then "save data options." You'll see two tabs at the top: "Wii" and "SD card." You may have a third tab for a game cube memory card, but ignore that.

Select "SD card." You'll see all the wii data saved to the card as graphic images. Select any you wish, and it'll give you an option to either copy or erase the file. Select "copy," and it will copy that data onto the wii.

Hi...
Go into the System menu and find "Quick Format"...This reformats a portion of the hard drive and usually allows games and disks to be read

Saved data in a different wii system


Hello,


found the following on the web under this link Wifi Data

First, to backup your Wii Fit save data, insert an SD Card and copy the Wii Fit game file to the card. You also need to Transfer all of your personal MIis to a Wii Remote. If you don’t, the characters will turn into guests on your friend’s console.

On the Mom’s console, go to the Mii Plaza first, and Transfer all of your Miis to their Wii (from your Wiimote).
Then, insert a blank SD Card. Copy their Wii Fit save data to it (if it exists). Then, erase their data from their Wii (make sure it’s backed up on their SD Card first!).

Remove their SD Card and insert yours. Copy your Wii Fit data to their Wii. Then go ahead and start and play Wii Fit with your save data.

You can simply reverse the process to transfer back.

Data transfer


Basically you need an SD card.

Located in the "Save Data" section of the "Data Management" area of the Wii Settings Save Data are the files created when you save a game's progress (such as high scores, items found, and where the game last saved), as well as data for certain Wii Channels

This data is stored in this section separately from the Wii Channel data, and can be kept, copied, or deleted independently of the Wii Channel it is used for.

Copy the Save Data to an SD Card, then delete it from the Wii
Most Save Data, including Virtual Console or WiiWare save files, can be copied to a compatible SD Card. This gives you the ability to delete that data, then copy it back over from the SD Card to your Wii should you wish to get it back at a later time. (Be sure to copy the data back over to the Wii when you wish to use it again; simply having the SD Card inserted with the data on it will not allow it to be used.)

Reformatting an SD memory cardf


You can format the card in your camera while not connected to your computer. In fact it's recommended to do so. Read your instruction book to find out how. It should be a selection available from your "menu" button when in image review mode. Select "low-level" or "full" format, not "quick" format (quick format is only good for erasing pictures).
