There are three files on the floppy disk.
Fat95, compactflash.device, and a file called cc0, I think.
cc0 went to a drawer called hdd:
fat95 went to L and compact..device went to Devs:
Thanks.

Here are the instructions.
Instruction:

- Put Floppy Disk into your floppy drive

- Copy DF0:devs/CompactFlash.device to SYS:devs/CompactFlash.device

- Copy DF0:l/FAT95 to SYS:l/FAT95

- Copy CF0 with CF0.info to anywhere on your hard disk and launch it after you restart your system.

CF0 goes in Devs/storage,

You mean DEVS:DOSDrivers
(alternatively SYS:Storage/DOSDrivers, but then requires manual mount)

But you can really have the dos driver mount entry files anywhere, and double click them to mount the device. It also works to put them in wbstartup...

Thanks, I will keep working with it. PrepCard sees it when I plug it in.

Yes I did. On an A600 with Workbench 2.04, there are no such drawers. I think 2.1 onwards use them, if not 3.0.

Trekj, check the version of compactflash.device that you received on floppy.

Version compactflash.device           <- Typed into a shell window

sd card-compact flash adapters are only really supported in latest version 1.33 from aminet. You may have been sent an earlier version on the floppy disk.

SDXC 64 GB and SDHC 16 GB.
4 GB FAT 32 and 2GB FAT 16, respectively.
They will probably get changed before I finish.

Then with WB2.1, you should have a Dosdrivers drawer inside Devs, and that's the best place to put CF0.

Also remember you can only have so much RAM on an A600 for the PCMCIA to work, and you must have V37.300 or V37.350 for PCMCIA to work too.

That particular revision of Kickstart is displayed on the "insert floppy" boot screen.

EDIT: Video here of how Windows format command sets up sector size according to card capacity;-

CF0 meaning this, - Copy CF0 with CF0.info to anywhere on your hard disk and launch it after you restart your system.

CF0 is a text file, a mountlist entry.

CF0.info is the icon file for it.

The idea being if it's in Devs/Dosdrivers drawer, the partition gets mounted automatically when Workbench loads.

It's very much a case of having most recent compactflash.device AND Fat95 filesystem handler to use sd cards in compact flash adapters.

If it isn't in Devs/Dosdrivers, you have to double click on the CF0 icon to mount the drive and get access to it.

I see. I try it and it says already mounted. This would be the second time tried and no luck.
I think my items will be in the mail box on Tuesday.

That sounds positive.

You know the PCMCIA slot can send and receive data OK (because Prepcard can see the card details at least).

You know that CF0 is finding the file handler for Fat32 and the device driver (although it might be too old to handle sd cards in an adapter).

I reckon you might have a problem with c/h/s values not matching up between the sd card and the entry for CF0.

You can either try editing the sector size in CF0 with a text file editor on the Amiga, or use Windows Commander to set up a 2Gb partition on the sdhc card and then formatting it with Windows (Default max for CF0).

You know it's working when you can "List CF0:" in a shell or click on the disk icon in Windows (magically appears on Windows).

The card shot be hot insert too, you can plug it in after Workbench has finished loading, Obviously never unplug it while it's being written to.

EDIT: ExFat partitions definitely won't work with fat95 file system handler.
