I have tried the 32GB CF cards, and a 40GB IDE Hdd. Maybe I should try a smaller size CF card that I have (an 8GB). Interestingly, the original CF card that came with my A1200 (and it has support for PCMCIA CF) is only 2GB in size! (the original owner installed Classic WB on it)



I wish the PCMCIA support worked on larger than 4GB drives.

The IDE CF size and partition size shouldn't affect whether PCMCIA CF cards work or not.

Something in software is stopping it from working.

Normal that they work, if they are formatted in the Amiga filesystem they don't need DosDrivers and CF0 mounting.


Make sure your new CF is formatted in FAT32 because if it is formatted in NTFS it cannot be managed by OS3.

Also check the DosDriver CF0 that the devices, Unit and filesystems are correct.
