DD floppies can be read by all drives. Just Windows XP does not support formatting 720K. But it can read them perfectly.

HD floppies can only be read by HD drives. There are HD floppy drives for the Amiga which can format disks to 1760K Amiga format or 1440K PC format.

A PC will not be able to read/write Amiga format (880K or 1760K). And games will not work from PC formatted disks (720K or 1440K). So the only way to write games to Amiga disks is to transfer the images (ADF, DMS) to the Amiga and then write them to disk.

Or buy a Catweasel controller which is able to write ADF files to Amiga disks with a normal PC floppy drive.
