When I tried to add a Harddrive to WinUAE it said it couldn't see any unformatted or RDB formatted drive.
Does the drive still work in your A1200?

Looks like some USB adapters have some weird and incompatible extra features because Windows won't add any new drive letters if the drive does not have PC partition table. (What does Windows disk manager say?)

Do you see any identication information (names, model numbers etc..) on the USB adapter?

btw, ALWAYS include winuaebootlog.txt when having "Add Harddrive " problems, thanks.
