Hi Rich, and welcome to EAB!

If, like me, you don't have a serial port you can use a USB-serial adapter.
I would just like to clarify something here.

Once Amiga Explorer is set up correctly, errors when writing ADF images on your PC back to floppies in your Amiga will invariably be due to failing floppy disks.

Amiga Explorer is very reliable, if slow, software provided dependable floppy disks are used.
