Which is the best utility for converting ADFs back to Amiga floppies? Would it be ADF2DISK or is there another better utility.
Also, is it possible to use ADFs with a native Amiga?

Unfortunately ADFblitzer won't come up with error messages if you try to write to a bad disk.

It just says process completed if it bumps into errors.

I mainly use a program called DIP (I think I got that off Aminet too, can't see where else I should've gotten it). Even though it's a CLI program it's fairly good, it writes or reads disks and verifies what it writes as it goes along and tells you if stuff goes wrong.

TransADF. A neat feature is that it natively supports GZipped and Zipped files, so you can transfer ADFs compressed and this beaut will uncompress them on the fly.

Specially useful for CrossDOS users/disk transferrers

I´m still sticking to TRANSDISK that comes with WinUAE Package but that is because I love CLI

If you love the CLI, then you should use the tool I use


That baby allows you to have total control. Amigaboy recommends it. 2 thumbs up
