Which is why you have to use something like WinUAE to read it.
With a separate card that is just FAT, you don't have to worry about that.

Again, no it's not....
Would it be nicer if there was hot swap? Yep. That doesn't make it pointless.
There is a very obvious point. You can use it without having to use something like WinUAE to swap files to/from the PC.

Now, is that enough of a point? Individual call. But it's far from pointless.
