Question ADF files not seen !!!!

I have used various versions of Winuae with no problems , now I have a new computer with Windows XP Home edition.

Winuae will load up fine but when I set up a configuration , it does not recognise the ADF file in the Floppy drive section , act as if there is nothing there , I have tried this on varoius versions.

Even tried pressing F 12 while the screen comes with the request to input floppy , and the floppy / adf file is there ????

any ideas ..

Silly question, but have you made sure that the windows selection "Show all file types" has been selected?

ADF Files not seen !!!

Thamks but .. I will clarify more what I mean , the ADF files are stored on my PC hard drive, I can see them , add them to a configuration and when I look at the Floppy disk tab in Winuae they are there , but when I press OK with the configuration loaded , Winuae run as if there is nothing there ..

As stated I pressed F 12 and the Floppy disk Tab displays the ADF location and file .. but doesnt recognise when I press OK ?

Which ADF is it? Can you upload it?
I know one Amiga "disk problem" by heart preventing the disk from booting: the LAMER! virus.
After inserting the disk, it loads a second, then you're back to Kickstart hand.

This is happening with all my ADF files , same thing .. interesting thoughts on a virus , don't know how to check for that with the emulator ? but one thing , I find that when I press OK with the config set , automatically the workbench screen appears ..

hmm .. cant see anything else I need to set .. , had no problems with the same roms etc .. with different machines and Winaue ..

if i understood you right i know your problem, winuae sometimes ignores the floppys and simply boots from hd, don't know why...
so maybe deleting your hd drives helps.

Interesting .. I haven't actually set-up my HD as yet .. was thinking trying it as an alternative to Floppies ( will have to figure it out ) .. have been away from this for around 2 years .. don't know as much with the changes over that period and anything else required when setting up the new versions of Winuae.

Will look into creating a HD .. any tips for that or something I have missed in set-up .. which may have changed over the last 2 years .. did look at the readme.txt files .. couldn't get to much from it .. regarding set-up .. or changes that would be required for set-up compared with versions of 2 years ago

Thanks ..

Might be this...

... I have recently started copying all my old amiga software to .adf format, and I have noticed many of them won't load unless I restart WinUAE from scratch (that is, they are the first .adf used... resetting under F12 -> Misc then inserting a new one doesn't seem to work). Could that be your problem? If so, the only work around I have found is a fresh start....
