So people claimed they can mount FAT32 volume under Amiga, but i'm skeptical about it. I know you can use fat95 with PCMCIA storage, but i never saw any guide how to use HDD with fat95... Would be good if Minimig will support PCMCIA. That would solve the importing problem. I've just posted this idea on Minimig repository, although i don't hope much..

I use 7000MB as second partition. On Minimig i use 1GB of HDF file as a primary boot HDD, and second SD partition as a second HDD. I use SFS for 7GB partition. Works good. Make sure you use quick format. Full format of big partitions may destroy the data.

The best solution is to have a 4GB file for the whdload content. And if you need more, create a second one.

If we will find the way to mount FAT32 partition inside Minimig core, then WinUAE won't be required. For mass import/export WinUAE is the best solution, while for couple files transfer would be better to make without WinUAE.
