SCSI Network

The cheapest way to network an A500 to a PC is via a SCSI network. First used with the Siamese software a long time ago....

You can pick up a GVP A500 HD8+ SCSI adapter quite cheap on ebay, PC SCSI cards are very cheap, cables are the expensive part. Plus you can expand the RAM of your Amiga to 10Mbytes (9 on older Amigas) and have somewhere to put those ADF images prior to writing them back to disk on the Amiga disk drive.

The siamese networking software can be found on the internet, I think that Steve Newette(?) and Siamese closed several years ago. Shame as I was looking forward to their 3-pack cases

Haakon, may I suggest a socalled "laplink-cable"

it uses the parallell-port, and I've achieved rates of about 30kB/s over that, using PC2Amiga (which can be found on Aminet). the archive also includes a textfile describing how to build a fourwire special parallell-cable.

It still won't make the PC a "virtual Floppy" but at least you'll be able to use the PC at was really meant for, a SLAVE for the Amiga :P

There are two examples on the Aminet... however one is in German and the other is an Italian translation of the German.

Ouch, german OR Italian...!

DocLink: think i'm going for alexy's solution. But i think i have to buy a "new" Amiga sooner or later. To bad my work is occupying all my time these days, but i'll keep my eyes open on Ebay (or QXL, a norwegian auction)
