The only cards that worked in my A1200 PCMCIA were Sandisk.
There is also the possibility that the adapter isn't working properly.

How fast is it at transferring files the PCMCIA slot,I would guess its a lot faster than serial,and when you plug it in dose it come up like a drive would.I ask cos I have never had one..?

I transfer files,well not big ones using Amiga Explorer.

It's even faster than the hard drive, usually. It comes up as a volume in unit CF0:.

i want to buy an pcmicia cf adapter to transfer files between my pc and a1200 hdd. Does it matter which one i buy?

the cards themselves should be sandisk.

amigastore etc are selling these adf transfer kits. Do you need them. I dont want to transfer from pcmcia to adf but to pcmcia to hdd.

As long as it is PCMCIA and not Cardbus, you should be able to use any adapter.

Amigastore's kit is ready to go, you have the drivers and the adapter in hand after that. Perhaps the disk even contains an installer to make it easy to get the driver to your internal hard disk/card, but this is a guess - I'm not in the target audience.

If you know how AmigaOS works, you can just buy the adapter from anywhere and download the drivers from Aminet. cfd.lha fat95.lha

The compactflash.device from Aminet is not the latest one - see here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m22hbwr7r4...FD133.lha?dl=0 - this one is said to support more cards.
