This is what happens:

>ls -al /dev/sdc
brwxrwxrwx 1 root disk 8, 32 Oct 12 08:40 /dev/sdc

>hatari --conout 2 --trace ide --ide-master /dev/sdc
Xcounout device 2 vector redirection enabled.

Hatari v1.8.0 - the Atari ST, STE, TT and Falcon emulator.

Hatari is free software licensed under the GNU General Public License.

 hatari [options] [disk image name]

Try option "-h" or "--help" to display more information.

Error while parsing argument "/dev/sdc" for option "--ide-master":
  Given file doesn't exist (or has wrong file permissions)!

Option usage:
  --ide-master <file> Emulate an IDE master harddrive with an image

/dev/sdc has rwx (just rw also does not work) permissions for all, so I would
expect it to work. On your machine this seems to be working, which file
permissions does your device file have?
