Floppy disk Unable to transfer ADF using Amiga Explorer?

Not sure if this belongs in the Amiga Forever section. Please move if incorrect.

I have an A1200 with 2MB RAM, 4GB CF hard drive(in 3 partitions, 2GB, 1GB and 1.5GB), I have Amiga Forever and Amiga Explorer on the PC.

It's all set up and I can see the Amiga and transfer files to it. However, when I drag and drop ADF files onto the floppy drive, it asks to overwrite(i say yes, even though the floppy is formatted on the amiga before hand)

Then it transfers and the floppy on the amiga sounds like its spinning, the progress bar takes about 3-5 minutes. Then I restart the Amiga and it goes to the HD with the floppy showing as NDOS? None of the games or programs I try run?

I've been told to use programs like transdisk or adfblitzer to run my ADF files, but these are .LHA, I transfer them onto the amiga's hard drive but they dont appear on the amiga and im not sure of the CLI command to run them.

I've also heard of using CrossDOS but you need 720k IBM formatted PC disks which i haven't got and i think my floppy drive on my PC wont recognise them.

What am I doing wrong and what are my options?

Thanks everyone

Kind of works now.

Basically its fussy on disks used, some amiga disks work and some don't. Some games run, some give software error on boot etc

But managed to get Cannon Fodder, Civilisation and Trolls running perfectly
