    FAT32 drives

    Is there any native app like this that will allow me to convert for FAT32 drives on a Mac?

    What I want is to convert *.iso to *.wbfs, then move to my FAT32 Wii drive.

    Currently I've just been moving the *.iso into Windows under Virtual Box, converting with Wii Backup Manager, then moving the *.wbfs out.

    So is there a Mac native method I can use to do this more simply? WBFS for Mac only seems to allow access to WBFS formatted drives.

    Thanks for any help.


    Edit: I realised I can share the Mac drive and manipulate files directly under Virtual Box Windows without the copying back and forth, which makes it much easier. Still, a program that can be run directly under Mac OSX to convert to .wbfs would be better.

    I formatted my External a long time ago using a PC, but the Mac WBFS won't recognize it. Do I need to redo all the formatting using my MacBook or is there something I'm missing? The HDD pops up on my desktop so it is being recognized by my Mac, just not in the actual Program.

    thegus5431, is your external drive formatted as WBFS? This program only uses WBFS partitions. If you're formatted with FAT32, the Mac will see it fine, but the program will ignore it.

    If it is formatted WBFS, try plugging in after opening the program (or before, depending on what you've already tried)

    If it is FAT32, you'll have to use a PC or the method I use in my post above. Or you'll have to make the partition WBFS, and re-add all your games (which will be very time consuming)
