But if once selected a *.HDF file name, I can not pick any other one. Master or Slave setting goes "disabled" and there is no way to get back to HDF file selection list. At some strange way I managed once to select another Master HDF file again, but Slave will auto-select the same file at once and can not be changed.
At first file select after PGM reset or power-up one have to press <enter/space> twice to reach file selection list for Master. First <enter/space> at Slave will automatically select "any" existing .HDF file (perhaps first in directory list) anc can not be changed.
As soon as Master HDF is selected, Slave will automatically take its name by attempt of selecting some Slave HDF file and can not be changed by hand.
Im sorry for reporting bugs again...
Boing4000 I'll investigate this
Anyway I think I should be the one apologizing here
I really appreciate all the testing hopefully I'll fix all bugs that way.
Maybe it´s not a bug but the hfd file which i have created loads very slow.
Opening a folder which contains nearly 30 files takes severals minutes(10 min.) on the workbench.
The hdf file has a size of 700Mb.
Is there a way to increase the loading speed ?
Dirk, HDF file emulation is slow because I can't use tables to speed up hdfile access like ARM controller does.
How ever there are few things you can do if you already didn’t and even for ARM controller is recommended to do same.
1.) Format your SD card with largest cluster possible, this way when random reading HD file PIC will need to search for new cluster less frequently and this will speed up disk access dramatically.
2.) You can use WinUAE to defragment your HD file this will also increase speed because Amiga will read data without too much seeking.
