Since you were running OS X, you may have turned off "Legacy USB" in the BIOS. Re-enable it.

The above link is not working - all I get is a pop-up stating that "This file is copyrighted and may not be distributed without permission of the copyright holder." It then tries to redirect me to another site to download movies.

Is this the same program?

Also, here's an alternative (WinToFlash):
