MIST and AMIGA core hardrive idea

Postby lips2k15 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 10:08 am

Hi there, I was wondering if there is anyway to partition an sd card so that it has a second partition that can be read from amiga workbench as FAT32 using the fat driver thats available on the amiga? this would be really usefull for file transfer to and from the MIST Amiga and is the only thing that stops me packing away my real Amiga 1200!

I agree, some easier way to access files would be useful.
For now I just mount the HDF file on the SD card in WinUAE and transfer files to it that way, then pop the SD card back into the MIST.
Still hoping we might get Ethernet support at some point in the future, that would make things much more convenient, allowing you to transfer over FTP or download stuff directly off Aminet etc.

If the HDF file is WinUAE compatible then you *should* (no guarantees) be able to use ADFView the Windows Shell Namespace plugin

http://www.viksoe.dk/adfview/

This will make HDF files appear as folders.

This was written for Windows XP so may not be Windows 10 compatible but might be.

Cool. I think it only works for OFS/FFS file system and nothing more complicated like PFS3 or SFS

It works very well! :D

Do you know if there is something similar for Atari ST hard drives?

Normal TOS supports DOS (FAT16) floppies.

As to hard disks images, EmuTOS supports natively DOS style partition tables and FAT16 partitions, in addition to hard disks without partition tables. You don't need any Atari hard disk driver with EmuTOS to support them (and EmuTOS boots much faster than normal TOS).

NOTE: Windows likes to use long file names (instead of 8+3 ones) on FAT16 file systems. Some TOS versions can corrupt the file system when they encounters those.

just bought WB3.1.4 :mrgreen:

I got a 16GB SD Card and did the following:
Partition 1: 100MB, for Core, Config, Kickrom etc
Partition 2: Rest (~15GB), used for Minimig IDE Master
FFS from OS3.1.4 in RDB
Via HDToolBox from Install3.1.4 parted into two partitions:
- Partition 1: Workbench, 512MB
- Partition 2: Data

I'd now like to access the Second SD-Card Partition via ADFView, but unfortunately, the drive isn't shown. Manually running TestHD from adfview Homepage gave me no clue. Has anyone tested something similar in the past?

Why do not you use WinUAE to access Amiga partitions?

Using WinUAE (on Windows) won't allow the use of only one Partition from the SD-Card. I can add a Amiga Harddrive-Disk, but WinUAE will look for a rdb, which is only present on the header of the second partition of my SD-Card.
I tried FS-UAE on Linux (Which will allow the use of a Block-Device /dev/mmcblkp1 ), but the Mouse-Cursor is really jumpy and the Keyboard on my Laptop doesn't work at all.
Accessing the Partitions from Windows Explorer would be the most straight-forward way for just copying files to the Amiga-Harddrive...
