PCMCIA Compact Flash not seen

I am using a Sandisk 1Gb compact flash with a PCMCIA reader. I have formated the compact flash with FAT32 and am using CWB3.9. I also verified all the CF drivers appear to be loaded (fat95, compact.flash, etc.).

The Amiga can not see the CF no matter if booted with it in the PCMCIA slot or not.

Any reason why my combo in the picture below would not work with the Amiga?

Sometimes I have problems with the formatting, I switch it up and the card is shown.
Try erasing the partition and making it again, and also try FAT instead of FAT32 and try formatting it with a tool like Mini Tool Partition Wizard instead of Windows' inbuilt system.

What do the commands 'version compactflash.device' and 'info' say?

Geez.. got it working.. I did not realize the CF0 program was in storage->dos drivers instead of dev->Dos drivers.
