Before clilcking "Start" check the "Add PC drives at startup" option. Make sure you have a CD in drive before starting the emulator

Here's a link from Thomas that explains how to set up WinUAE and AmiCDFS.

Problem.  I've even downloaded the latest version of WinUAE and uaescsi.device does not exist in the directory that I installed it in.

I've tried doing everything else, no diff.

Doing 'add PC drives on startup' doesn't add the CD drive.

Hum,
In winuae prefs under `Misc` there is a box called `UAE scsi.device` that need to be ticked...

Greetings Mikeymike,

Although I tried this under version 0.8.25 Beta1 of Amiga Forever CD, it works.
Here it is:

In 'Hard Drive' tab Select Add D[/]irectory - A pop up comes
type this under Device Name: CD0 (no colons)
type this under Volume Label: WinUAE_E (or whatever Cd drive letter it's assigned in this case E:\)
under path select the drive, but remove the '\'.

That's it.

The disadvantage is removing the volume. the icon is still there. Just try this method. It's only temporay measure for me just to test if the uaescsi.device is really functioning.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Gizz72

@mikeymike

UAEscsi.device isn't a real file--it's a virtual object created by the emulation, similar to uaehf.device and bsdsocket.library. The walkthrough referenced by adolescent is mostly correct.

Apart from UAEscsi.device support, you might also want to try the "Use ASPI SCSI layer" option, even if you're using an ATAPI CD-ROM drive (all IDE/ATAPI devices are considered "SCSI" in Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003 and are recognized by ASPI). Be sure to download the latest ASPI package from Adaptec.

There's one catch: if you have a real SCSI controller installed, WinUAE won't enumerate your ATAPI devices. I haven't investigated why, but I imagine it's an easy fix--maybe a project for a slow weekend.

Anyhow, I use AmiCDFS. CacheCDFS should work as well--see the WinUAE readme re: OS 3.9. If you go the "Add Directory" or "Add PC Drives at Startup" route, you won't get support for Rockridge extensions (long file names, case-sensitive file names, symbolic links, etc.), as WinUAE will be using Windows for file system access. On the other hand, if you don't have a UDF capable file system driver, Windows is your only option for access to UDF formatted CDs and DVDs.

Through mounting the CD drive through the hard disks section (the 'CD0' suggestion), I've managed to install Aladdin 4D, thanks for your suggestions.
