PC-Task44, AmigaOS4 and hard drive

Hi guys,

I need your help with pc-task44 and hard drive under amigaos4. i downloaded and installed with success pc-task44 for amiga (68k). There is a free version here on aminet:


Then I used this guide to setup an hard drive to use with pc-task44:


So far i was able to run pc-task44 and install ms-dos on my hard drive, everything was fine.

Now i can see the ms-dos hard drive under amiga os but the hard drive is not accessible, I need a mountlist (my guess) to access it under amiga os, so I can transfer program using dopus from amiga to pc and viceversa..

I tried to create a mountlist but without luck.. can you help me?

this is the mountlist i tried to create:


/* $VER: PCC 1.0 (26.10.19)
* PCC file system entry

FileSystem = L:CrossDOSFileSystem
Flags = 0
Surfaces = 2
BlocksPerTrack = 16
SectorSize = 512
Mask = 0xFFFFFE
MaxTransfer = 0xFFFFFF
Reserved = 1
Interleave = 0
LowCyl = 43
HighCyl = 874553
Buffers = 1000
BufMemType = 1
StackSize = 2000
Priority = 10
GlobVec = -1
DosType = 0x4D534800

/* The Device and Unit fields are controlled by tooltypes in the PCC icon.
* Device = scsi.device
* Unit = 5

Here the grab with the PCC's configuration parameters from MediaToolBox:

Does PCTCrossMount work for you? The documentation for it is terse, for better or worse.

In the CrossDOS mountlist, are you specifying the disk (lowcyl/highcyl) or the partition? If the intention is for CrossDOS to read the Master Boot Record, then LowCyl should point to that.
