View Full Version : Catweasel Flipper for WinUAE.

Well my first attempt at getting this set up failed miserably. Maybe it's me, so i just walked away from it before i blow my top, I had plenty of distractions, I'll try again soon. Meanwhile I figured I'd ask again if anyone else got theirs and if they set it up for use with WinUAE yet?

Wow this product must have sold miserably:-( Come on people get off your wallets!!
The reason that it did sell miserably if it did is because of the poor driver support for it.
All the drivers that I seen lacked one thing or another which puts doubt in my mind if it even works.
I'm not paying for something that's not real.

Redrumloa Ranted:Wow this product must have sold miserably:-( Come on people get off your wallets!!:-? As I recall, until the Catweasel came along there was no way to read Amiga formatted floppy disks on another platform, so the author(s) of UAE didn't program floppy support into UAE. I suspect that until UAE is re-written to use the Catweasel, you'll have to continue with .adf files...
well, I got mine today (err.. make that yesterday), but Im not having a great deal of success with the UAE drivers either.
Im thinking it might be to do with the fact that I installed the windows drivers first, and had to disable them as per teh instructions so that I could install the UAE drivers.
Will have another go tomorrow night probably...

It supposedly has UAE support.
I'm stuck where you are.

what about Disk2FDI ?
What about it? :-?
It works! :-D
I think the problem lay in the fact that I had disabled the card in the windows system window and so the IO space the card needed had been taken away from it.
I have currently re-enabled it, but have not yet rebooted, so windows has not re-enabled the drivers.
Not pretty, but it seems to have worked.
I am not sure how I am going to persuade it to leave the card enabled without installing the drivers.

Uh, that's kewl and all, but I have Amithlon. I have a machine that runs it. I want Amithlon drivers. Great for you guys.
hmm, the soloution I am using to read the disks in WinUAE appears to use an windows IO library to access the PC hardware directly, and the emulator uses the real amiga multidisk.device, so I would be surprised if a similar soloution could not be created for Amithlon, its the same hardware after all...
Has anyone got the catweasel pci/flipper to work with Amithlon?
If so what driver did you use?
How and where did you install the driver?
