WinUAE and hard disks

Firstly I admit it was going on 1am last night when I finally turned the power off and went to bed as this is driving me nuts.

Long story short I'm trying to setup an 80gb hdd for use in my 1200. Following on from a previous post were I had problems with PFS3 I decided last night to start again but one thing is bugging me and I think it might be the root of my problem.

The hdtoolbox be that 3.1 or 3.9 will NOT see any drives unless I select UAE as the controller option in the WinUAE hard drives dialogue. I understand the proper selection should be IDE 600/1200/4000 but if I select this and mount the drive it is never found in hdtoolbox. In hdtoolbox there are 2 options uaehf and uaescsi. UAEHF shows the drive when I set the controller to UAE. UAESCSI only shows my computers dvd drive.

I can't help but think this hurdle is one of the reasons I'm struggling to get the large drive working properly and I also can't help but think its something so simple that I'm missing.

Why will hdtoolbox not see the drive when I select IDE as the controller????????????

For information....
I setup a 500mb hardfile
installed 3.1
installed 3.9
installed boing bag updates 1 and 2
installed pfs3
installed scsi.device 44.2 and modified startup with loadmodule command

At this point that I connect the IDE drive and try to partition it but as per above its only visible in HDtoolbox using the uae controller option.

I went ahead anyway and setup using the UAE controller and partitioned the drive with a 2gb DH0 then DH1/DH2 are using the rest. WinUAE boots the drive and all seems fine but will this work in the 1200?

I suppose I'm looking some comfort before I spend a few hours tonight copying whdload files and various other things.
