Accessing R/W Amiga HDD (CF card) within winUAE

Hi!

***Keep in mind that I haven't used an Amiga for many years!

I tried to pull my CF card HDD from my A1200 (3 partitions FFS formated) and access it on my PC via my built in CF card reader.

My idea was to configure WinUAE to boot from it and then mount a couple of dir on my PC containing ADF so I could copy them over the CF card in one partition. But I hit a snag.

First I wasn't able to boot from it. I added the drive and made sure that bootable was checked. I was able to boot from df0: with a WB 3.1 ADF, and I see my 3 partitions mounted.

What am I missing or doing wrong? What I'm trying to do, is it possible with winUAE?

There is no bootable option when adding a harddrive. Be sure to use "add harddrive", not "add directory".
