I mean, do you use a PC utility like DISK2FDI (I always use it, it's the best one. Adfread is definitely not reliable - I'll give details if needed but I'm still "investigating") or do you use an Amiga utility?
Hi Supamax,

I use Amiga Explorer and attach my PC to my Amiga with a null modem cable. This program gives perfect .adf images every time from real floppies in the Amiga's floppy drive, plus it can give .hdf images from the Amiga's hard drive.

I am also a registered user of Disk2FDI, but I find that sometimes it will not read disks properly which the Amiga will. However the registered Disk2FDI program has the advantage that it will read lots of other formats (it's particularly good at reading early Macintosh GCR encoded disks of 400kB and 800kB capacity).

Hope this helps!

(I have not tried ADFRead.)
