Mounting Amiga HD in UAE - but in Windows 98

Is there any way of doing it in Win98? The option to add Amiga drives only seems to be available for WinXP

No. Only NT-based Windows versions have API for directly accessing any harddrive-type devices easily.

I don't know about screwed, but you certainly can't read the HD under WinUAE if you're running Windows 98. :-)

@Shrub
If you already tried to connect your AmigaHDD to the Win98-PC, then you are really screwed, because Win98 overwrites a few bytes in the RDB making the HDD unusable on a real Amiga. WinUAE (running on XP) and Amithlon are said to repair that automatically, though.

Yeah, I did that with the 1.5GB harddrive and it buggered it up. The CF card I'm using for the Amiga didn't get modified using the PC's USB/7 device drive, but WinUAE would only mount disks formatted in FAT16 through that anyway. I think I should reinstall and get used to XP
