I've been digging the MPDOS cable setup I got off eBay recently (there's another one up now). I don't have to make floppy disks to play it on the real thing anymore, or have a hard disk and all that hassle. Just a cable and an old A500 that the floppy drive was broken anyway.
Now, you don't get the floppy noises, which may be part of "the experience" for some people (you actually get this in WinUAE also, which I like). However, it seems to be faster than a disk drive as well. No grinding or seek times.
