It can be confusing if you're completely new to the Amiga - many of us are quite knowledgeable from growing up with these great machines and emulation usage came like second nature.

A lot of basic info can be found on the internet and I suggest you do some reading up first then post here about any specific problems you're having. There is just too much to cover when you’re being so vague.

PS - Welcome to the forums!!!!!!

I've upped a working version in the Zone (link at the top of the page). Download and play under an A500 config in WInUAE.

Erm, ADZ's work in WinUAE just fine, no need to convert. The new WinUAE can also use zipped ADFs.
