I have the Sunrise IDE interface with a CF card reader (the loose one, with one port), and I managed to copy a HD image from BlueMSX to it. I have one fat12 partition to start the MSX to MSX Dos. I loaded the Fat16 driver and created a few Fat16 partitions with When I copy the image back to the PC with DiskImager everything seems te bel ok. Then I put something on the image via edit169e, in a Fat16 partition. Then I put the complete image back to the CF Card. Then the MSX Turbo R does not recognize the fat16 partitions as MSXDOS partitions.
My question is, is there a program that lets me write directly on the CF Card (MSX) partitions?
It would be easier to do it via the driskdrive of the MSX, but it is broken. The only thing that works, is if I use Fat12 partitions instead of Fat16 partitions.
Thx in advance!

Nope, just buy a cf USB reader and copy to the cf card using "my computer"
Windows never gave me problems using that, however Some people mentioned that Windows tend to format fat12 to fat16.. But again: this never happend to me

I don't see the files in windows and I have a USB reader. If I go there with my computer, it says I should format my CF card because the file system is'nt recognized.
