I have installed macfuse and fuse-ext2 multiple times and yet they don't seem to work. I want to be able to mount and edit a Raspberry Pi image file (NTFS) on an SD card. Unfortunately nothing appears of the image file in Finder. What am I doing wrong? One more thing: there's a file that should be edited to be able to write files on the target image. Every tutotiral mentions it yet it cannot be found :


Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

  • Can you add a link to the tutorial you've been following? Also which version of the operating system do you have on your Mac? – Alistair McMillan Dec 28 '16 at 11:59

What version of MacFUSE have you installed? MacFUSE is no longer maintained and has been replaced by Fuse for macOS.

The latest version is 3.5.4 and it's compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 and above and works on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.

If you require MacFUSE for your system, then there is a MacFuse google group that may be helpful, although I'm not sure how current it is since the onset of Fuse for macOS.

  • IIRC, back in the day, Mac Fuse was hard to uninstall completely. Have a good look around your drive to be certain some piece of it isn't still lurking and messing you up. From what I read FUSE for macOS should do the job for you. – Wayfaring Stranger Oct 22 '18 at 18:51
  • "MacFUSE is no longer maintained and has been replaced by Fuse for macOS" And yet the website and latest release in 2021 still say "macFUSE"... – alexw Feb 22 at 19:16
