Hi Everyone, i recently upgraded to the newest apple operating system and have discovered that my osx ssd now shows up in Pi Baker. Previously this had not been a problem but so that people are aware and dont try to install raspbian on their osx ssd i figured i would post this.
Happy Tuesday

Hi Theniccolo,

I apologize for the late response (in the middle of moving to my new home).

As far as the SSD showing up, which definitely should not happen, could you run on your machine, in Terminal:

diskutil list

and for each line that starts with /dev/diskx (for example: /dev/disk0, /dev/disk1, etc):

diskutil info /dev/diskx

(replace "x" with the numbers you found)

And please post the results here?

I'm running macOS Sierra 10.12.1 (latest) on a MacBook Pro 15" 2015 Retina, and cannot reproduce the issue you're running into. 

When it comes to failing to format SD cards, do you get a specific message? Or just it just "hang"?

Also please verify if you're using any kind of disk cleaning utilities that remove the hidden Apple files from external devices and/or network shares, and/or any antivirus applications.

I updated to the most recent version of pi baker just to see if that fixes it which it did. Not sure if it was a past version issue that you patched or what but its all working smoothly now. i was using version 1.81 and am now on the latest stable version. You can close this thread as it seems to be easily remedied with the latest version

OK, thanks though for taking the time and effort to report.

The biggest change was how Apple handled certain descriptions of devices in macOS Sierra. The latest version indeed addresses that. 

Thanks again!
