    Help needed, my iUSBPort 2 doesn't have Enable HFS+ Writing option at all, in fact, most of them I can't find it.

    Under the setting, the firmware is blank, i can't determine what firmware my iUSBPort 2 is.

    Please scroll down the Setup page.  It is correct the firmware version showing blank, the device has the latest firmware installed.

    For the HSF+ writable in iUSBport2, it will be available in next firmware update.  (it will be released soon)

    I just updated an iUSBPort2 to firmware v19, which states:

    4, Add an option to enable 'HFS+ Writable’

    However, like those above, I see no option to have "HFS+ Writable" enabled.  Not being able to copy a CF Card to a Mac-Formatted hard drive is a pretty serious limitation for me (particularly since the copy/paste option does not support raw image files).  Please let me know what to do as my return period for the hardware is getting short.

    If you restart multiple times, the option to enable HFS+ write will eventually come up.  Then, I had to restart the iUSBPort2 to actually get it to work.  Eventually, it would write and even copy a CF Card without getting errors.
