View Full Version : winUaE USB harddrive issue.

30th August 2008, 19:58
Hi I am having trouble getting my 2.5" drive formated under winuae.

It is attached to my usb caddy and uae tells me that

the selected drive safty check is active, and the hard drive is not empty and non rdb enabled.

I have used the caddy before with no worries and it works with amiga drives ok.

Any ideas? I have 3hdds I am trying to setup via winUAE.

Run WinUAE with the -disableharddrivesafetycheck command line option
Find the shortcut, go to properties, and add ' -disableharddrivesafetycheck'
