    Default Tutorial:- Setting up a 4gb CF HDD with Classic Workbench & WHDLoad for Amiga

    Hi All,

    I spent some time today creating a video tutorial for installing Classic Workbench with WHDload Games onto a 4gb CF card, it seems to be a commonly asked question for a guide (from start to finish) so here it is in video form!

    This is intended to be the most basic steps to achieve the objective so that people returning to the scene can get up and running as easily and trouble free as possible

    I didn't cover optimised file systems and large drives, etc as I didn't want the guide to be overly complex. Please allow yourself plenty of time if you plan to do the installation, the video it's self is over 30 minutes long and there were a lot of times the video was stopped for processes to complete. I would say to setup a drive and Classic Workbench from absolute scratch allow 1-2 hours depending on how many Games you want!



    The Video is still processing, it will be in HD once processing has finished. Lighting wasn't great so it is a little grainy in places but where you have to read text on screen it's fine

    Anyway, I hope it helps some people who otherwise might have struggled

    Steve.

    Cheers mate.

    Yeah you can probably hear the little critters along with some fan noise. Youtube is very good now at filtering it out and they have shake reducing too now so the video will improve

    Nice video Steve,

    I am downloading it for future use as it has been a while since I set up a card and this will save me from making any mistakes due to forgetting what I was supposed to do especially the max transfer part

    This will no doubt be a great benefit for your intended audience as well as forgetful folk like myself where it will save a lot of re-researching and scratching our heads wondering why it didn't work because we have done it in the past (but forgot how we did it)

    Great job Steve

    Where was this video a few years ago??? Well I managed with the help of KTC to get CWB up and running, but now I can do it myself!

    Always seem to come across half finished/old guides so this video is sooo sent from heaven! Thanks Steve

    Well, it took me three hours, but it worked!

    Iíve just installed Classic Workbench 68k on my A600 and it works perfectly. Considering I have no idea about the intricacies of Workbench, if I can perform a full install using this guide, then anyone can.

    Many thanks, SteveÖ

    @Somelie

    I'm really glad it helped you

    The first time does take a few hours, once you get the hand of it you can zip through them
