CF fixed disk utility
Does anyone have the utility that tells a CF card that its a fixed disk drive? I believe its called atcfwchg.com
I've cant seem to run bootprep on my 1GB cf card. It keeps saying the drive is protected. I can fdisk and format it though. Anyone have this file? Thanks
what card do you have? I've run bootprep on removable drives before and I never got such an error. are you using a 40 conductor cable with your ide adapter?
I have a SanDisk Ultra II 1GB, using the CF slot built into my mobo, its using the slave position on the secondary IDE channel. Its a permission error of some kind. I can see the CF as if it were a fixed disk in DOS, but in windows is still shows as a removable drive. Is this correct?
yeah, it's just Windows that has the issue with fixed vs removable. what letter does your drive get assigned? whichever that is, that's what you need to use, i.e. "bootprep /dn" n being your drive letter. your mobo's cf slot doesn't have some kind of write protection does it? you sure the cf slot is on the IDE bus, right?
I'm running bootprep correctly, its assigning C to the drive. I wouldnt think its write protected if I can fdisk and format it. The CF slot is on the secondary IDE channel, I've tried master and slave. Do you have that utility?
What system board to you have ? If MII10000 then I don't think BIOS will see the drive as an IDE device.. therefore poot prep wont work..
edit: If my hardware has arrived I'm doing this tonight... I hope it goes smoothly !
My board supports booting from the CF slot. I just need the utility.
I'm in need of this too, I'm using the slot built into my MB, I can boot to it, but need to mark it as fixed. could someone send it to me please :)
Didn't notice this thread.....
I'm would like a copy of the utility too.
