Converting Compact Flash card contents into HDF file

I have a Compact Flash Card containing a workbench I set up a while ago. I kept the hdf file on my PC but I've since deleted it. I'm looking to convert the CF card contents into a hdf file I can use again in WinUAE.

I googled and saw a suggestion of using a program called tsgui.

I used it and created an hdf file, but when I mount it in winuae, it says that it is not a DOS disk in DH0. Has anyone successfully been able to convert their CF card file into an HDF and use it in Winuae or are there other methods?

Separately, I created an hdf by mounting the CF card as a hard drive and then making an HDF file from it by choosing that option in Winuae, but again when I boot from the hdf file it says not a DOS disk in DH0.

If you create a HDF of a partition you have to note the geometry of it (use the partition information menu item in TSGUI) and enter the values in WinUAE when you add the HDF to the harddrives list.

If you create a HDF of the entire harddrive with all its partitions (TSGUI calls it a RDF), then WinUAE should automatically switch into RDB mode.

The same should happen if you create the HDF with WinUAE.

Hi Thomas, thanks for your solution - making an rdf file that I could then use in Winuae worked. Thanks for your quick reply.
