Since Hatari developers all use Linux, the file selector does not understand different drives like Windows uses.

For the Windows version of Hatari, I think you will have to keep the program and all supporting files on the same drive. In the past, the developers have not been interested in supporting Windows drive letters in the file selector dialog box.

If you want an emulator that is Windows-specific, you may wish to try Steem SSE.

Thanks for the answers.
It's a shame that the file selector is restricted to drive A and B and virtual disks

The A and B refer to the emulated ST, not your PC drives. There was a comment on the development list asking if the path could be made editable in the SDL file selector.

While not as convenient as drive buttons, it would allow Windows users to access files on a different drive letter. I have no idea if this work will be done though.

Nobody using Windows has contributed code for that to Hatari.

(Hatari developers don't have Windows install with which they could develop / test Windows specific changes, so all such things need to be contributed by Hatari's Windows users. So far none of those Windows users has been interested enough in this kind of feature to contribute it to Hatari.)

One can already edit the paths in the Hatari configuration file. Different paths in the configuration file can point to different drives. One can also use different config files for different drives, and have on desktop Hatari shortcuts for these ("hatari --configfile <file>").
