Public Domain CDs?

Had a look around does anyone know where I can grab some PD CDs (Fish, 17Bit etc.)for the Amiga, when I was a kid I could not afford them, but as I understand since there public domain I should be able to freely download them anyway

I still own my one and only public domain CD "CDPD V1" I think it came free with the A570 anyhow...

BTTR dont seem to work right yet for me, and has little, but I think thats because its just suddenly surfaced

That looks nice, but its all in DMS, I was hoping for some kind of ISO or ready to go types.... hmm I wonder if theres a Windows app that can unpack DMS files then I could download them all, unpack them and turn them in ISOs/CDRs again

Hmm as I remember DMS files are images of floppy discs so this may require more thought.

EDIT : I've just realised this is in the wrong section... oh what a fruit shoot does to man

xDMS on Aminet will do the job for you on PC:

Total Commander probably has a DMS plugin that will do the job too.

Thanks for the help, I think I'll leave it at least 30+mins of attempting to get that Total Commander to do anything usefull, its so uncoperative its unreal.

I got the AmigaDX plugin which claims DMS support, so much install trouble, infact I think thats why it don't work, keep gettings errors in readin the DMS files from AmiNet.
