A couple questions regarding CompactFlash cards

Post by juz400 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 1:18 pm

A couple questions regarding CF cards,

Can I use a Dual 44pin cable with the TF330 so I can leave a CF inside the CD32 and have a port out the back to connect a second(slave) to?

I want to backup the 8GB one I got with my TF330, I have a couple 3.5" bay multi card readers but neither seem to work(Win10)
Any recommended/halfway decent Compactflash card readers for PC?
I have USB3 headers on Mobo but reading some of the reviews, even the £34 ones have problems with iffy card alignments and pins pushing in
Thanks in Advance,
Justin

Never tried this but i've always said keep the cables as short as possible. My guess is there will be issues.

Keep in mind that you need to run WinUAE in Administrator mode to be able to access the CF card. If you run it like a regular user, you will be unable to add it as a hard drive.
