large drive issues with cf

i have tried to copy the scsi.device across as per utube. Every time i do my a1200 will not boot, hdu flickers, black screen and then nothing. I boot from a floppy or whatever delete the scsi file and on reboot the machine is all happy again

Im i doing something weird??

I currently have a dual cf reader with 2x 4gb cf hdus set up. Id like to replace the 4gb work disk with a larger cf for whdload images etc

I can't really be of direct help I'm afraid - I don't have the hardware to test the replacement scsi.device drivers on CF cards.

You have replaced the filesystem haven't you with a >4GB friendly one? Also you have to make sure maxtransfer is set correctly. I think there is some info on the EAB wiki and a search on this forum will also throw up some useful info.

Read this thread http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=32256

Many people have used the one provided with success - there is also another replacement scsi.device by Cosmos but I think he deleted his work: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=57419

Someone might still have it.

I'll up my scsi.device for you into The Zone! shortly.
Copy it into devs and it should work.
Let us know
