Latest build - Cannot setup HDD/FDD/CDROM

Postby Fusion » Thu 02 Nov, 2017 7:47 pm

Hello, I compiled the latest PCem version from: https://bitbucket.org/pcem_emulator/pcem/downloads/.

It compiled fine, but I cannot get any BIOS to detect the HDD, floppy drive, or CDROM drive. I've used PCem for a while now and have never run into this problem.

If I use v12, I have no issues. I even tried bringing over the pcem.cfg from v12 and that didn't help anything either. Am I the only one with this issue?

My config:

Code: Select all

gameblaster = 0
gus = 0
ssi2001 = 0
voodoo = 1
model = 430vx
cpu_manufacturer = 0
cpu = 7
cpu_use_dynarec = 1
cpu_waitstates = 0
gfxcard = mach64gx
video_speed = 5
sndcard = sb16
cpu_speed = 19
has_fpu = 1
disc_a =
disc_b =
mem_size = 65536
cdrom_drive = 0
cdrom_enabled = 0
cdrom_channel = -1
cdrom_path =
vid_resize = 0
vid_api = 0
video_fullscreen_scale = 0
video_fullscreen_first = 1
hdc_sectors = 63
hdc_heads = 16
hdc_cylinders = 4163
hdc_fn = C:\Users\funkm\Desktop\PCem_Latest\HDD\WIN95C.IMG
hdd_sectors = 0
hdd_heads = 0
hdd_cylinders = 0
hdd_fn =
hde_sectors = 0

Recently, PCem has an option to configure the IDE controller.

It is required to be setup (currently it doesn't have a default setting) and you need to do so from the new wxwidgets interface (the older interface is going to be removed for v13).

Alternatively, add this line to the config file:

hdd_controller = ide
