I have been using a SELECT 3.5" 135 TPI DS HD disk and covering the second hole to fool the the floppy drive into thinking its an LD disk without any luck

Has anybody got any suggestions
Cheers
don't use twinexpress it sucks...from what i remember it does not support long filenames and it's really slow an unstable (i was unable to make it work at high rates)...buy a parrallel null cable and use pc2amiga, the most efficient program of all...
and to transfer your tool from pc 2 amiga through floppy, format any non hd floppy on your amiga workbench pc0: device (to be mounted maybe) - it's 720Kbytes capacity...you can use hd disks as dd disks on your amiga, but your pc won't recognize them as dd disks so that it will fail at writing/reading..
