Just bought an Amiga 600, great deal only £25 and came with 30 boxed games and loads of other bits!!
Anyway, is is posible to write to a floppy the contents of a ADF file on my PC and use the said disk on my Amiga or do I have to transfer the ADF to the Amiga first and write it to disk from there?
TIA for any help u can provide.

Read the announcements at
The first link, Amiga Emulator FAQ, has the info you need.

You need a workbench set of disks (If you can try to get 1.3 version) and go to http://homepage.uibk.ac.at/homepage/c725/c72578/amiga/
Here you'll find all you need for transfering amiga disks via a serial cable.

Hi Bad Mr Frosty,
1. transfer the ADF-file from the PC to your Amiga
2. write back this ADF-file on your Amiga to a disk
In the link below i tried to explain above proces.

Another option maybe would be using Disk2FDI. I have no experience with to program and i don't know if using it is safe. You need two diskdrives in your PC system. The program can be downloaded from the official website at below link.

Yes it is safe unless you're stupid and mix up the floppies. :sleep

Thanks for all the help guys, I have discovered that the version of workbench I have (2.05) will not allow you to mount PC0: thus I am unable to read a disk formated on my PC. Looks like my only option is to find a null modem cable.

Hint: You need 'type' command of workbench 1.3 or a serial transfer program on your Amiga. Without those progs you'll not be able to transfer a thing to your Miggy. If you have problems I can help you with a rexx script I wrote for transfering 'type' to my A600.
