    Copying Wii games from DVD drive to hard drive

    I have downloaded WBFS v1.2 for mac but this does not seem to have a function to copy Wii games from DVD drive. Is there a WBFS manager for MAC similar to WBFS Manager 3.0 for PCs? Or is there another way to copy games from the DVD?

    You can use the loaders themselves on your Wii to install the games off of disk. Or to get an .iso of the file, you can use CleanRip on the Wii, as well.

    I tried putting in a Wii game in my Mac this weekend, and it had vomitted all over itself trying to read it, eventually auto-ejecting it.

    If this isn't what you're asking about, you will need to clarify further.

    I'm trying to RIP the wii game from DVD to my portable hard drive. You can do this on PCs using WBFS 3.0 but there does not appear to be a similar version for mac?

    WBFS For MacOSX no longer mounts working USB HDD

    I have had a working WD Mypassport USB drive working for a few years that was loaded with the kids backups several years ago.

    That was originally done on a PPC mac, We no longer have that computer, all are now Intel Macs running Mountain Lion.

    I wanted to remove some of the young children's games they dont play anymore. And add some of the new ones they play often before the disks get destroyed, lent out, lost etc.

    I installed the WBFS 1.2, from this site, it opens and runs, but when the USB is plugged in, The mac says its unreadable, and wants me to initialize, or format it,, and it will not show up in WBFS for MacOS x. No matter which usb port I try.

    I also tried Wii Backup Fusion 1.1 and it will not find the USB drive as well.

    I tried to go through the Fat32 guide with a new USB drive, and it appears that it will work to backup the disks we have, but I need to get the games off the old drive we dont have the disks for anymore. They still have the cases for them but somehow the discs didn't get put back in them....

    I can mount the old usb drive, and access the permanently loaded WD crap, but cant see any of the games.

    Has anyone with a current Mac running Mountain lion been successful with the WBFS manager for MacOSX?

    If not,, Ill have to find someone with a PC I guess.

    You have to run wbfs as root. Either get a program called Pseudo or open a terminal, or open a terminal and type the following:
    sudo ./"WBFS for MacOS X.app/Contents/MacOS/WBFS for MacOS X"

    Make sure to include the "
