Lightbulb Catweasel & problem with reading files on AMiga ...

So I know already how to write adf's on PC with ImageTool - just using 1,44MB HD floppy discs with small modifiaction of course.

But I'm curious how to transfer those .LHA, .LZX and those WHDLOAD files to Amiga ?
Using catweasel I have written diskettes with above type of files in the same way as I write ADF's - but this seems not to work. AMIGA DOESN'T RECOGNIZE IT and can't read it.

Anyone can help me friends ?

Cheers.

Use WinUAE or ADFOpus to copy the archive files onto ADF files, then write the ADF files to disk. Or configure WinUAE to use the Catweasel directly as a floppy drive.

AFAIK there exists no software which can use the Catweasel to write single files to Amiga floppy disks directly from Windows.

Not until Cyclone 20 is finished and fully released, but it does do that even now.
