Are there any cover cd collections out there?

I have a load of cover cds from amiga format and cu amiga, I haven't noticed them online anywhere so I was wondering if I would be posting something new by ripping them and uploading them.

If there is a collection already could you tell me where so I can see if I have anything that's missing. If not then let me know if you're interested and I'll post them, slowly and probably to a.b.emu.misc/amiga.

I've also got a few old manuals and game boxes - is there anywhere I could send these that people would be interested?

Sorry if there are websites out there that I should know about for this but I've only just rediscovered winuae!!

I only know of these two:
http://amigacoverdisks.emuunlim.com/
http://nthdimension.emuunlim.com/

but it look like these sites are no longer being updated.

Edit: DOH! Sorry did not read your post properly. Cover CDs not floppies.

I didn't lose interest or anything, just took me a while to get around to reading the magazines and looking at the CDs, next thing I know I'm a few months behind. I was working nights at the time you see......

I'm working my way through ripping them all, it's going to be a mission to rar and par them all.

Does anyone know of a news poster that let's me limit my upload speed, otherwise it kills by download speed, it's been a while since I used powerpost.

Here's the list of ones I've got:
Amiga Format: 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 12, 17, 18, 21, 22, 29, 33, 34

CU Amiga: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 26, 27

I've also got UPD Gold pd collection 4 discs, Network cd 2, CD Exchange vol. 1, BCI Net Dec 94 & ape/my 05, Oh yes more worms and AGA Experience - have any of these been released already as it'll save me the hassle.

Some of the commercial stuff you mention is available from:
http://ftp.back2roots.org/back2roots/cds/
but they dont have any of the AF and CU Amiga stuff you have. Do you have the August 96 CD/floppy? One of the very few I missed.....

BTW BippyM, I've forgotten which AF's you were going to re-rip from the original discs now to verify some of those I did I'll try and find the list, but the dat should show you which (ie. those not there, those without [!]) if you're still up for doing them

Bippym: Thanks for the offer, I'll take you up on that sometime when I've ripped & sorted my collection. Are the AF coverdiscs publicly available, if not I'll post my rips up to the newsgroups so anyyone can grab copies, or are they your private collection?

I've checked the TOSEC dat and I've got AFCD3 (but see below ) and 10 or so CUCD discs that aren't listed I've just started ripping the first of these and will try and get it uploaded to ab.emulators.misc and a.b.e.amiga tonight before I start drinking. I'd welcome any comments on that if anyone has any probs.

I can uplaod it to your ftp at a later date BippyM if you aren't able to get it from the newsgroups, I'd rather release it this way as one upload from me (at a SLOOOW 20kbs) will let anyone whose interested get the files.

Idoru: I'm not sure whether the [!] is good or bad, could you let me know as if there are bad rips of some of the files I've got then I can upload them as well.

lloyd: I've got the AF August 96 cd, but I tried to rip it yesterday and it wouldn't rip!! I'll try again on other computers/drives to see if I can get it sorted

I think that covers everythimg!!

As for AFCD3 (Aug 96) I'm getting a lot of read errors when using alcohol to rip it, can anyone recommend a good program to use to rip it?

CDRWin from Goldenhawk is very reliable.

Best would be if you use this guide to rip your discs: http://www.redump.de/guide.html

Cheers Duke, I'll do that next cd I rip!!

In the meantime CUCD3 is going up to the newsgroups I mentioned earlier if anyone's interested. It's a bin/cue file already, bit of lucj that. If there are any problems though just let me know here. I also stuck scans of the inlay in as well, they're photoshop files (to keep quality) if people would prefer jpgs etc lmk.

Rippers etc. I use Nero Ultra. Tell it to do a CD copy, name the image file whatever the Cd is (EMC Phase1.nrg for example), tell Nero NOT to erase the image file and then tell it to write. It rips the image to the specified drive, then asks for a blank CD. At this point, you cancel the burn, rar the image file and Robert is your Father's brother!! Works every time, unless the Cd is buggered in some way.

Question for ya - does anybody know of an Ami file system that READS Joliet CDs made on a PC? Maybe I should post a new thread......

As for some of the CD's not in the dat yet, those are probably ones with audio tracks that I didn't bother doing yet as there wasn't another copy to verify against...but if someone else is doing them I can go back and rip the rest

I've got all the AF's & missing 2 CU's only atm.

BTW BippyM...if you and anti etc are still gonna redo the WHDload dat when subdir support is available...it is Bogy just released a ClrMamePro with it enabled and TIM is still on schedule (with it working in a beta ) for release soon.
