How do I transfer ADF files to floppy disk for use on a real Amiga?

Hi,

Just bought an Amiga 600, great deal only 25 and came with 30 boxed games and loads of other bits!!

Anyway, is is posible to write to a floppy the contents of a ADF file on my PC and use the said disk on my Amiga or do I have to transfer the ADF to the Amiga first and write it to disk from there?

TIA for any help u can provide.

You need a workbench set of disks (If you can try to get 1.3 version) and go to http://homepage.uibk.ac.at/homepage/c725/c72578/amiga/

Here you'll find all you need for transfering amiga disks via a serial cable.

Hi Bad Mr Frosty,

You could:

1. transfer the ADF-file from the PC to your Amiga
2. write back this ADF-file on your Amiga to a disk

In the link below i tried to explain above proces.

WinFellow Website - Documentation

Another option maybe would be using Disk2FDI. I have no experience with to program and i don't know if using it is safe. You need two diskdrives in your PC system. The program can be downloaded from the official website at below link.

Yes it is safe unless you're stupid and mix up the floppies.

Thanks for all the help guys, I have discovered that the version of workbench I have (2.05) will not allow you to mount PC0: thus I am unable to read a disk formated on my PC. Looks like my only option is to find a null modem cable.

Hint: You need 'type' command of workbench 1.3 or a serial transfer program on your Amiga. Without those progs you'll not be able to transfer a thing to your Miggy. If you have problems I can help you with a rexx script I wrote for transfering 'type' to my A600.

901 kb files

I noticed that the adf files are actually 901kb. Will they fit the 720kb floppy disk?

1. 901120 bytes = 880kb, they'll fit on a standard DSDD 3.5" floppy
2. You must be confusing the Kickstart with Workbench
Workbench 1.3 comes on 2 disks, 3.0/3.1 5 disks or 6 if install disk is included.
