Cant get ATA3.driver to work with FastATA MK IV

Can anyone give me some advise on the following error:

After installing the ATA3.driver for my FastATA MK IV I get the following errors.

C:ATA3.driver: file is not executable
C:ATA3.driver failed to return code 10

My setup:

A1200 1D4 motherboard
Blizzard 1230 MK IV and ACA1232 - 40
3.1 Roms
I have the FastATA MK IV connected to a 16G CF card on the primary 2.5 inch.
CF card has AmigaOS 3.1 with ClassicWB Installed. I have downloaded latest drivers from Elbox.

I have the following in the beginning of my startup-sequence

C:ATA3.driver QUIET
C:stack 8192

When I comment out the above two lines, I can boot up ok and everything is fine on both the Blizzard 1230 MK-IV and the ACA1232-40 Cards

ATA3prefs detects the CF card correctly. I have tried PIO3, PIO4 and PIO5 settings with no success.

I have reseated the FastATA cards a few times on the motherboard but still the same errors.

Any ideas anyone?

Send a message via MSN to Bamiga2002
Type in CLI:
Code:
"Protect C:ATA3.driver rwed"
and try again. Did it help?

Absolutely Brilliant. Working now. Bumped up from PIO3 to PIO5 and still operational. I have confirmed resident ticked in ATA3Prefs and changed startup-sequence to C:ATA3.driver RESIDENT QUIET.

Can you give me an idea what "Protect C:ATA3.driver rwed" does?

Thanks again

I want to know it too, but I believe the command unprotects your ATA3driver for running. ¿?

r, w, e and d are "protection bits".

The 'r' bit allows the file to be read, 'w' allows it to be (over)written, 'e' allows it to be executable, and 'd' allows it to be deleted.

Other protection bits are 's' (script), 'p' (pure) and archive (a).

The Protect command can be used to modify a file's attributes by adding or removing these protection bits.

A missing 'e' protection bit was probably causing your original problem, preventing the ATA3.driver from being executed.

Well, to be exact, actually it only marks the file as executable. It does not really make it executable. You can also get the error message if the file is indeed not executable, for example if it has been corrupted or if it is not a program.

So it seems.

I always strongly recommend reading the manuals that came with the computers.. There's a wealth of good info there. Archive.org has a lot of Amiga manuals uploaded as PDF, many AmigaDOS manuals included.

Go, read, learn. :-)

Thanks, Thomas. You're right, of course. It was getting late, so I made it short.

I've now edited my post for better accuracy.

File protection is not specific to AmigaDOS. Unix/Linux and Windows have it, too. Although in Windows it seems to be limited to write-protected and archived. But Unix is similar to AmigaDOS, it has read, write and execute.
