Possibly. Very old IDE drives and USB adapters don't work (USB adapters for some reason don't support very old IDE drives that only support CHS addressing). It is easy to find out, if Windows disk manager reports the drive as zero size: CHS-only drive. Which drive model and size?

WinUAE (which is used in AF) can access CHS-only drives if USB adapter uses JMicron chipset, it has special vendor specific mode that enables direct access to IDE HD, bypassing the limit. Mainboard IDE port will always work, if you have some old PC with built-in IDE port somewhere..
