    been out of the loop for some time with the wii and just recently decided to try out the whole usb loading thing and everything is fine and dandy except for the fact that i can't seem to open wbfs for macosx. i've d/led from quite a few sources and unzipped them, i go to click on it and nothing happens. even if hdd is connected, i get nothing. at most, i get a couple of flashes from the drive's light. i've googled and searched the forum and haven't come up with an answer. if there is then sorry.

    what exactly am i doing wrong?

    thanks in advance.

    edit: i currently have the drive formatted to wbfs via cfgusbloader and installed some games from disc. just can't figure out why wbfs for macosx isn't working. running macbook 10.4.11

    Use Parallels or VMWare Fusion and run WBFS Manager or WiiBackupManager through Windows.
    At least, that's what I do.

    Try WIT, it runs native on MAC. Source and 2 GUIs are also available.

    The WBFS For MacOSX application is very old and nowhere near up to date. It simply should not even be used at this point.

    WIT is where it's at for Mac OS.

    EDIT: Beaten to the punch.

    WBFS for Mac OS X may not be up to date, but it still works great. I think the problem is your old OS version, consider updating to Snow Leopard.
