CF issue in winuae

Hi I'm trying to aet up a CF card as a hard drive in Winuae so that I can prepare it, install workbench & other programs before using in my A1200 to replace the HD.

I have deleted partitions on the CF card using Paragon partition in windows XP PC.

When I click add hard drive winuae sees it as non-empty and throws up a warning message. "saftey check is active. Disk is not empty and non RDB partitioned"

But is is unallocated space - definately deleted the partition. Tried x2 VF cards now winuae says same thing.... It is definately unallocated space 1.98Gb....

so what am I doing wrong?

You don't need to delete partitions. You would have to delete the partition table itself, but there is no program to do this.

Just disable the safety check in WinUAE: run it with the -disableharddrivesafetycheck command line option.

If you don't know how, use the search function. This has been discussed 1,000,001 times.

Ok - managed to start winuae in -disableharddrivesafetycheck mode, add hard drive - CF card apperas on list as 1.9Gb NON EMPTY. It lets me add it but when I start workbench using OS 3.9, and run HDtoolbox the drive is not listed anywhere....not on desktop either??

Tried both IDE 0 and winuae for controller....no joy? The CF card is connected through USB reader.

any ideas?

As mentioned before, add the -disableharddrivesafetycheck command line option to WinUAE.

Under the WinUAE Hard Drives section, go to Add Hard Drive and select the CF card. Leave the HD Controller = uae. Check the Read/Write option.

Boot into the Amiga (OS 3.9).

Go to sys:tools/HDToolBox and add the ASKDEVICE tooltype to the HDToolBox program. Comment out the other options by adding () around them.

Start HDToolBox. The program will ask you to choose a device. Select uaehf.device and after that, you will see your CF card ready for partitioning.

Hope this helps.

- Bogdan

Click on the HDToolBox icon once and choose Icon -> Information from the menu. In the new window click on new and enter ASKDEVICE there. That should do the trick
