ADF's files appearing as Tool icons. How do i write them back on WB2.1?

Hi - we are having problems with files taken from our pc to amiga using a FAT32 CF.

We can take any adf or lha file from aminet on to our pc and then onto our 1200 by the pcmcia and CF.

Problem is once there, they appear as tool icons on our WB2.1. once transfered

We hear that this is to be expected as adfs are floppy disk images and that we need to write them back. However, our floppy drive is unreliable at times.

Apparently they are other ways around it, such as mounting them in a virtual drive. (like a .iso file image of a CD/DVD). So maybe we could do it this way, but currently have no knowledge to so.

We are unable to download any internet files for the amiga to help with this problem as we will only find ourselves again with more tool icons.

Could someone tell us how to open and use these tool icons within WB2.1 using either the shell or workbench?

Thank you
