Amiga HDD on PC
« on: January 03, 2005, 12:34:15 AM »
Is it possible somehow to "mount" Amiga HDD (real) on winXP
, so that the files can be accessed with Total Commander? (I don't like adfopus, cause its buggy.)
Better sorry than worry.

Not that I know of. You can mount it under UAE. It just would not be visible to XP.

I have read about an Amiga file system for Linux (hoping that it was ported to MacOS X, but no..not yet) I have been able to back up most of my old files from my Amiga IDE drives on Windows XP by setting it up under WinUAE. (I have one very old  2.5in 80meg drive I used in my CD32+SX-1 that couldn't be found but that was using it through a 2.5in external housing through the USB. I think I just need a normal internal adaptor.) Otherwise  everything worked like a charm with the 3.5in drives inside the system.

What happens if Amiga HDD has PCTask and some MACemulator partitions on it? Will winUAE just skip them?
Better sorry than worry.

From reading previous posts in the forum, I would not try
mounting Amiga drives under Me/98/95.  Under these OS's,
you run the risk of screwing up the RDB.  Supposedly, XP
will not do this to the drive.

I unfortunately found that when I had 98, does anyone know any way of fixing it?

Hi,
I also have a CD32 w/SX-1 and an internal 2.5 inch drive.  Could you explain to me in detail how you connected your CD32 to Windows?  Please include any hardware you had to buy.  I use WINUAE now but I don't have 100% CD32 emulation and would like to extract my rom as well as access some old files.  I haven't even booted the thing in so long that I don't even know if it still works really.

Finally got round to trying it (with the new suse eval version - very slick), but no joy I'm afraid.  Win98 did a damn good job on it :-(
