Hard Disk Help


Is it possible to use a real Amiga CF card as a hard disk with Amibian? I've got one I use with a real A1200 and would like to use it with the pi as well.


Just connecting it means that the pi can't see it (I'm assuming because of the file system), or at least Midnight Commander doesn't register anything in the media/usb folder.


What would be the easiest way of doing this?

You can try mounting the CF card in WinUAE as a drive, then making a blank HDF file and copying all of the files. Then only problem is that you might need to mount another HDF afterwords and name is HD0.

That sounds like a better solution than trying to mount the device under linux then having to mess with devs:dosdrivers mountfile. Good idea Phalkon. I will try to keep that idea in my mind.

    I created a new Hardfile with the emulator. I mounted the hardfile as UAE and as IDE drive but HDToolBox can‘t find a Harddrive and no harddrive shows on the workbench screen

    Hi! I've written about this before but I think I have been dancing around the issue.. to be more specific... I would like to emulate an Amiga 2000, with the ability to use Video Toaster and run Lightwave. (That probably isn't emulated yet but I want the config to have the ability) Obviously 640 x 400 is not the resolution for that, and I have seen much better. How do I do this? Does anyone have an image configured I could use? Thanks!
