Hi Bob,

Have you put hd4.hdf into the data directory (i.e. it should go here by default anyway)?
Have you done a *CO.IDEDISCS 1, and rebooted?
Can't remember though if you need to format the drive using !HForm (available here: http://www.support.riscos.com/Support/index.htm within the Updates folder, or use the RO4.39 CD ISO, as it is also on there).
