Config: WinUAE 4.2.1, CPU 68020, 24bit, FPU 68882, 8MB FastRam Z2, A1200, CF 4GB Transcend, BetterWB 43, Dopus 4,

When I try to copy folders from PC to CF Partition (2.4GB, pfs3) it goes alright, but then unexpectedly throws bitmap error. I formatted and partitioned the card godzillion times already SFS, FFS, PFS. Same thing over and over again. Always correct MaxTransfer and Dostype were entered.

  • Have you tried the WinUAE support forum? – UncleBod Jun 29 at 16:39
  • I've done this sort of thing - creating CF cards with Amiga native filesystems under UAE - with success. However, I've never been successful doing the same on WinUAE. I think UAE accessing raw block devices is better supported on non-Windows platforms. The most reliable and simplest method I've found is firing up MorphOS on an old Mac. – Brian H Jun 29 at 18:53

    Sounds like it could be a card issue alright. I've never had an issue like that with a CF card, SD card or mechanical hard drive when accessing via WinUAE, and it's used all the time by many people so I can't imagine it's a matter of being adequately supported under Windows. Is the 2.4GB partition located at the start or end of the drive? If it's at the end, try making it a little bit smaller. Sometimes the geometries don't match up, especially with older versions of HDToolbox, and this can make it thing the drive is slightly larger than it actually is. – Daedalus Jul 1 at 22:18
