October 13, 2012 // 4:07 am - Following up on the previous PS3 BDEmu applications, today Marcocanc has made available a Mac OS X Switcher v1.3 for PS3 BDEmu drives.

Download: Mac OS X Switcher for PS3 BDEmu Drives v1.3

To quote from his blog (linked above): Hi folks, today I'm releasing a tool which I wrote a long time ago. This tool allows you change the default slot of a BDEMU drive on Mac OS X. Unfortunately, as OS X 10.8 doesn't allow raw HDD access to normal users anymore, you'll have to launch it as root if you're a 10.8 user (a tool that makes this very easy is available for free HERE).

OS X versions below 10.8 aren't affected by this problem. The names of the games will only show up in the drop-down menu if they were set as "memorandum" during the slot-creation process (or manually using a hex editor). In case the names weren't set, the game-ID is going to be displayed instead. To connect to the HDD, you have to look up its name in the Disk Utility (e.g. if the disk is called disk3, the path is going to be /dev/disk3).

For any questions or problem reports, leave a comment below or tweet me Marcocanc.

Thanks to RichDevX for helping me code this application!

To quote: Hi, I have written a little program, that manages your Images on a DEX-Image-USB-Drive; It's on "Alpha", means it can be better, but I think this program does it's work. Please read manual_en.txt. I hope it's useful.

  • Argument "-noDiscNames";
  • Argument "-noAskDeleteImage";
  • "Insert Image" is disabled, if Slot is in use;
  • Delete last Slot can be used without selecting the last slot;
  • Elapsed time added;
  • Estatimed time added;
  • Transfer rate is shown;

I wanted to use my 1TB external hdd for my DEX system and didn't find a way only to use for example only 500gb for the bdemu and the other half for a normal ntfs file system.

Is this actually possible or do i need to use the whole drive?

thanks in advance

Nice but I won't go to dex due that Bluray player won't work. I will stay with my CFW with most games and bluray player just fine for now. However, I will keep my eyes on it from now on. Good work, PS3news.
