how to transfer non-dos TOSEC images to disk?

i have an A500 with only 512 KB Chip RAM + 512 KB Slow RAM and would like to somehow acheive this. i already had problems with the following games using Amiga Explorer:

Dragon Ninja
Black Tiger

how do i know what is and what isn't a non-dos game?

i currently do not have extra RAM nor a hard drive so what are my options? can i send 440 KB of an image to the RAM DISK and begin the writing process? i'd appreciate any help including other options.

When i transfer a NDOS game (through null-modem serial connection with AExplorer or transwarp), the system always display an error (880 validating) before the end of the transfer.
It doesn't mean it failed.
It only means the Workbench can't read the content of the floppy, but the game is bootable.
I just click on cancel and let the transfer finish.

Did you try this ?
Or maybe your ADF is bad ?

I thought you could turn off ADF validation on one side or the other?
