Compact Flash A1200 Help!

Hey guys

I've hit something of a problem this evening, it's something thats honestly never been an issue until today.

What I'm working with:

Workbench 3.1

2x A1200 + 030 accelerators, Viper & ACA
3x CF -> PCMCIA Adaptors, Sandisk, Two generics

CF Cards:
1Gb Kingston - Nope

8Gb Kingston - Nope

8Gb Hama - Nope

128mb Transcend - Nope

32mb Sandisk -> Appears

All of the above are formatted in FAT or FAT32 respectively.

I've installed CFD133.lha and FAT95

For some reason I can't get anything except the 32mb card to work, nothing else pops up on the screen. So I'm posting here in the hope someone can point out something I've missed

Some CF cards are just not compatible with PCMCIA port. I find Sandisk CF card the most compatible.

There are some extra options for the driver that might help improve compatibility with some cards. Check out the cfd documentation for details, but bear in mind that you'll need to unmount and remount the device for the changes to have an effect.
