Yet Another CF Setup Question...

OK. Got an ACA1221 for my A1200 and a 4GB SanDisk Ultra (25MB/s) CF Card.

I'm using a Transend USB 3.0 to SD/CF/MS Duo/MS Pro reader to format the 4GB card to use in my A1200 with ClassicWB.

All the guides I followed do not work. I'm running WinUAE 3.0.0 in admin mode and trying to add my card. It's formatted as FAT16 (I also tried unallocated).

When it's formatted in FAT16, it see's the MBR in WinUAE, unallocated says UNK.

The 2 boxes do not fill up with the drive parameters when I try to add it in WinUAE, guides show that people have info in those boxes.

I am using diskpart to clean the drive but it defaults to a logical partition.

I even tried to use it as an IDE device but it doesn't show in HDToolbox. UAE works kinda when I edit the info to display uaehf.device, but it just spits out "Unit is not a disk (type 32)" when I try to read the disk properties.

I know this is probably not the best way to describe my problem but can anyone help me? I'm for sure I tried following all guides.

Would it just be simpler to buy the 3.1 floppies from AmigaKit and format on a real device with the IDE to CF adapter? I really don't want to wait again to set this all up.
