Floppy disk PC to Amiga disc?

Hi'ya
I have just got a good old Amiga 500 ;-)
from a friend, the only prob is their is no disc's for
it! :-(

I have noticed their are loads of freeware games on the web for the amiga, is thier any way of puting the ADO files onto a disc from my PC so I can use the games on my Amiga?

Many Thanks

On the PC itself you have little chance unless you get hold of a Catweasel... and only then if you have an ISA slot to put it in.

You can do it on the Amiga but you need a disk to boot the A500 in order to load some PC <-> Amiga transfer software and also the software to write an ADF to disk, so that's obviously a problem - I think your best bet is to see if anybody can provide you with a bootable floppy with the right software on it.

This was talked about here...
Catch22 in ADF -> Amiga disk conversion
download on PC, play on AMIGA

Hope this helps
