I am using SD cards as storage media on my the STE via the Ultrasatan
Controller. Copying a sd card via dd allows me to start hatari with the
disk image the following way:

hatari --acsi disk.img

Now I was thinking such call would also work

hatari --acsi /dev/sdb

but hatari fails with

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

I have seen other emulators working with raw devices like qemu
As I am sure I have the right permission  ( I can "stat" and "dd" the
block device) what is exactly the pb there ?


you should try the current dev version, other people reported a similar
problem and thomas committed a fix for this on 12 Oct 2014 :

Indeed it works ( tried with the ACSI image from )

manu@django:~/atari/hard disk images$ hatari --acsi /dev/sdd
VDI screen: request = 1024x768@1, result = 1024x768@1
Hatari v1.8.0, compiled on:  Oct 27 2014, 19:32:26
Mounting ACSI hard drive image /dev/sdd

Thanks and by the way <3 for mercurial and cmake :)
