I just didn't want to be hijacking someone else's thread so I started this one.
No, I didn't name it. and I just deleted it a few moments ago, getting ready
to reinstall it again.

well, not so good. I still have it not responding.
I have it on the upper toolbar but when I go to

Can you please take a screen capture of this hung state and post it?
If not, we should at least determine your Mac hardware: Is it a desktop or laptop? What is the processor?
Also, having the PocketPOD connected before you launch the program is required for smooth operation.
Is your hard drive named differently than 'Macintosh HD' by any chance? If so, what have you named it?

Sorry unable to capture the hung state but here is the rest of the info you wanted.
It is a desktop and yes it has been renamed.
I attached two files.
I always plug the pod in first before trying to start.
I always have to force quit the app to close it.

Last night after I wrote you, I changed the name of my hard drive back to Macintosh HD.
This morning I went through my computer and deleted all things psicraft and vyzex, then
reinstalled it and...VOILA!
Up and running now!
We had just bought a 1 TB Time Capsule the other day & it wasn't backing up, not until this
morning after changing the name to the HD last night! Hmmm...coincidence?
Well, thanks for the tip regarding our HD name!

The image you uploaded of your old drive name indicates you had a 29 character root drive name, which is what was causing the problem for not only the Vyzex editor but for time machine as well. I was researching ways to get the program to cope with such a monstrously long drive name, but your choice to simply rename the drive back to its recommended default is of course a better and quicker solution.
