Another Possible Amiga Treasure Chest

Have recently found and revived my trusty ole amiga 1200 and found everything intact and working, which means my 800+ meg backup section is working, which means about 600+ megs of games and 200 of demos. Hopefully something on the HD may be of use to the community.

Couple of questions before i have a fiddle with it

1) Whats the easiest way to transfer from a Amiga formatted IDE drive to a PC ntfs partition

2) Is software available on the PC to convert DMS files to adf's???

Any thoughts on this will be greatly recieved

If you set up your Amiga hard drive on your PC you can mount it in WinUAE and copy the files from there.

There are a few DOS utilities to convert DMS archives to ADF e.g. xDMS:

if you got stuff as .DMS's .. Leave em .. Dont 'convert' em .. DMS's are exciting with .nfo and .diz's attached.

Send a message via ICQ to andreas Send a message via AIM to andreas
Better suggestion:
burn a CD, make an ISO and upload it to one of the guys' FTPs!
Who knows whether you don't happen to have the one or the other rare crack amongst your stuff!
