The "point" is that you don't have to unplug your OS CF and then mount it in the PC under WinUAE so you can transfer files

Powering down is no biggie. This is an Amiga after all.
We're used to power downs between games and it reboots nice and fast. :-)

Now, if you don't like it, that's OK. But that doesn't make it pointless.

To be honest, I wasn't sure about the need when I got mine, but I use it all the time to transfer files. It actually works very well.


the point is not a theary but reality,you can just move the main drive to a pc as well if its a cf card or even any other drive.(going by the picture you can do it on both as its on the front)
as youre only swapping files to a and from a medium.thats a fair point isent it?

surely if i dont like the idea of using a cf card as drive,thats my opinion and i stick by that.
but having two cfs in the front where it can be accesed and having to power it down,when you can do it with one is pointless even more so when it doesent support hotswapping.
