Adding an old IDE disk to WinUAE 3.3.0

I have tried to add an old (but still working) FFS IDE disk (WDAC31000-00H, 1GB) to WinUAE (run as admin) by first connecting it to my PC via an "R-DriverII USB to IDE" cable, and using the "Add hard-drive" button in hard-drive settings.

The drive appears in the drop-down window but reported as an [OS] disk.
If selected, the read/write checkbox remains ghosted, and if added, theres an "E" prefix in the hard disk list, and when starting the emulator it is not visible on the Amiga side.

Out of curiosity, I tried the same approach with an IDE->card adapter, connected to the same IDE->USB cable (the 44-pin side), and this one was recognized as [RDB] disk, and I was also able to boot it.

I also tried the -disableharddrivesafetycheck without any change.

Is there a solution to this, or will some disks simply not work this way?

Thanks for any help.
