Cant use CD drive ?

When trying to load up a WB 3.1 in Winuae, all is fine, until I set the config, by adding a CD drive,
then the emulation doesn't start - all I get is a white screen.

Removing the CD drive in options, and reset, lets WB boot.

What I want to do, is to copy/clone an Amiga based CD, on to an SD card, to use on my amiga 3000's via a SCSI2SD card.

Its for my VR machines - where I want to emulate the CD drive as I cant seem to get any I have to work.

Any help please.

Verify that the CD that you entered does not have problems reading

To emulate the CD, on Windows exist are some software that create partitions CDFS on CF and Pendrive

Easy option: Tick CD/DVD automount checkbox. Do nothing else.

Do not add real CD as directory harddrive. Read-only harddrive is not same as CD drive. For example if CD was designed for Amigas, you most likely lose all long file names, comments/protection flags and get useless 8.3 names.

(It shouldn't cause any hangs, unless there are some read errors etc)
