Guys, read Toni's reply.
Size is no factor on pcmcia, as both the driver (cfd) and file system (fat95 usually) supports TD64

Thank you so much for that. I did make an effort to be on the latest CF PCMCIA driver, but I have now downloaded this version you linked and will see if the one I am on is older - if that is the case I'll update. Once again thanks!

The most ideal solution for me would be a 32 GB CF card in the PCMCIA slot formatted to PFS3 (same as the internal CF) so that I can easily back up the partitions on the internal CF and also update the WHDLoad collection with minimal messing around.

Any help/hope to get the 32 GB CF to work would be nice. It IS detected as being inserted (looking in the CardPrep application) but I can't do anything with it.

1. Any difference between A600 and A1200?

2. Any idea why A600 sometimes reboots when CF card is plugged into PCMCIA port? The CF card is functional.

Well, can you partition it if you run "hdtoolbox compactflash.device"?

yup can confirm this 100%...tried 4 before just buying one from Amigakit and telling them it must work with pcmcia card and voila it worked

Just to say I tried updating my CF0 compact flash device with the link I provided earlier and can confirm it now even sees the cheap 16gb knock off china ones, so if you have not updated do so and all should be good, so I cannot see why a 32gb will not work.
This is with the CF formated in Fat32

how to:
download from the link I put in earlier post then

1. Goto Devs/Dosdrivers and replace `CF0` with the `CF0` from the Download

2. Goto Devs/ and replace the `compactflash.device` with the one from the Download,
thats it all done.

**Note
make drawers and save the original files incase you muck up
