Tell me, for example, what is on disks 100, 200, 500 and 1000 and I'll see if I have the same CDs. Hopefully you've got some massive new collection that has all the MIA disks we want.

I can't find those in that order on any of my lists, so perhaps you do have the missing link CDs. What are the file dates?

I think DMS2ADF is for MAC only. If you download XDMS you could use it this way in the commandline or a batch file:

XDMS U *.DMS

That would unpack all DMS files in the current folder to ADF files. At that point it's up to you whether to delete the DMS files, ZIP the ADFs, etc.

WTF is that incredibly ugly GUI in the first picture?
It really looks awful (ignoring jpg reduction etc), the actual 'useable area' of the file list windows looks like under 50%, what a bloody waste... all that crap down the left side, and the gadgets, don't start me on the gadgets...

Excuse me while I throw up in a bucket...

You mean "if" Amiga OS4 is released. As of now it's not looking good. But, at least they got it to boot on the A1 finally.

I don't mean 'if', It's looking better than you know, can't say anything - NDA

As for the 'finally' it's been booting on an A1 for over a year... what they 'finally' got around to converting to ppc was the graphics.library (the last one btw).
