    Issue using WBSF for MacOS X

    I have successfully completed a soft mod of my wii using guides I founds on here. I have formatted my USB using Configurable USB loader to WBSF. I have an .iso of a wii game that I would like to put on the USB. As far as I can tell, it should just be a matter of dragging and dropping the .iso file to the WBSF for Mac program. When I do that, it spends a couple minutes processing, and makes a noise like it's finished, but I can't see the finished file anywhere. It's not on the USB because when I plug in into the wii it tells me there are no games, and it's not listed anywhere in the WBSF for Mac program.

    What am I missing here?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    (I'm using a MacBook Pro OS X v10.6.8)

    Thanks for that - yes I had a look at that one before posting. It doesn't seem to correspond exactly to the issue that I'm having. My usb is already WBFS formatted and the WBFS program is recognising the device. The problem seems to be with the WBFS program itself - or perhaps it's the .iso file that I am trying to use.

    Yes i had read that guide before I posted - like I said, there isn't a problem with the program recognising the usb as it is formatted correctly etc, it's an issue once the program tries to process the .iso

    I've managed to fix it now - thanks anyway.

    Mind telling us what the problem was? Just if someone else has the same issue, it could be useful info.

    It would seem that the .iso I was using was corrupt in some way. Once I tried with a couple of different ones it worked perfectly.
