- can you copy an ADF from your amiga onto the gotek drive?


- can you use ISO images with a gotek drive?

Should no click programs be 100% silent?

im using anti click at the moment, but this applies to other programs aswell.


should they make the drive click 100% silent, or will there always be a very quiet click (like a clock ticking) ?
