It could be your CF card is not compatible with the Amiga using the IDE adaptor/converter you have. Some info about issues which might arise:

Individual Computers' TrueIDE may or may not help.

Another thing to consider though, is the different drive geometries. Your CF card will report a specific C/H/S geometry in its IDENTIFY DEVICE data. Your WinUAE config will be using a different geometry.

Try to determine your CF card's geometry. You could do that by connecting it (via IDE adaptor) to a PC, then run hdparm in Linux. Or maybe there's a PDF manual/specification for your specific card which gives that info?
