What disks do you intend to dump? Practically no Amiga software was delivered on high density floppies, as only the A3000 & A4000 were sold with HD drives.

If you want to just dump all types of disks - not actually use the A500 to run software - it'd be much easier to get a Kryoflux setup and do it on a modern system. A bare bones A500 doesn't even have enough RAM to hold an image of one floppy disk in memory, and transferring the image to a PC or anywhere else is going to be a hassle.
