WBFS partitions on Mountain Lion

Today i was trying to backup a Wii game on my USB disk but i couldn't do it, it used to work ok on Mac OS X Lion but it does not on Mountain Lion.

I tried several programs and after a while i got the solution: run the program with sudo.

It turns out that Mountain Lion does not allow a normal user to access the WBFS partition

Thanks for the tip! But Witgui and Wii Backup Fusion are still not recognizing my partition. Maybe I am not doing it correctly? I'm running "sudo open path".

Edit: I ran "sudo" and it worked. Thank you!

The Witgui site discusses this issue and has a couple of workarounds. Basically you need to chmod the /dev/disk of your WBFS drive so normal users can access it. This is either a per disk connect chmod call or permanent via a script called when the disk is mounted.
