Partitionning IDE slave
« on: 16-05-2016, 17:42:54 »
Hi Peter,

I have an IDE interface plug into my Atari STE (French, 2 Mo, Tos 2.06).
I'm using a IDE -> double Compact flash adaptor.
Your driver see both master and slave CF.
Slave CF has no partition. So, i'm using your tool to partition it, when I'm clicking on Slave, nothing happens : No refresh.
If I click on master or ASCI (I don't have ACSI device), refresh occurs, but clicking on Slave do nothing.

My version is u1.3.

Note: If I insert a slave CF with partition, slave's partitions are append to Master partitions list.

Regards,
Tophe

That's strange. What is exact type of that double CF adapter (if possible to see) ?
For now I recommend to put that card in master slot and partition.  Partitioning self will not affect anything considering where will card be used - same for master and slave.
That's usual way of mounting partitions - after partitions on Master partitions from Slave will be mounted, in order. And max total 14 of them, because TOS can not handle more.

Hi Peter,

Here a photo about this IDE to double CF adaptor :


There is a jumper for which slot is master.

When both CF have partition, everything is Ok.  Your driver shows both CF and partition, and both are available on desktop.

But your partition tool don't seems to recognize slave.
(Ok, it's steem, but same on real hardware).
