Press space bar to skip it and get a SD drive ?
already had one got sick of trying and failing to get a reliable SD card. satandisk is incompatible with 90% of them, mostly they read but can't reliably write. Including the ones scalpers sell filled with games on eBay. got better things to do than suffer through badly designed nonsense like that

You are aware of DMA problems on the STE ? If you change the CPU to a HC one the write issues normally go away. Ultrasatan AFAIK nobody has any issues with it.

You can even use a program to test RW to prove ultrasatan or not in the software section.

Not got any DMA problems with the DMA-SCSI board on a MSTE, rock solid reliable with it's original 48mb seagate.

Will check what CPU type I've got in a couple of weeks. On holiday right now.
