brand new amiga wannabe owner and experimenter

Hey all, I'm dreamcast270mhz, a game/computer enthusiast who found myself on the amiga bandwagon. My goals for amigas: Own an a4000/3000,a1200/a500, run amithlon/amiga XL on a few machines, get a minimig and program, get an amigaOS 4.0 compatible computer (Classic with ppc card,sam440(not likely) amigaOne(also not likely), or if someone successfully ports to ppc macs!)

Welcome Dreamcast270mhz. Nice goals, I truly hope you achieve them. My goal is one day to own an A1200 with a fully functional floppy drive.

Welcome Dreamcast270mhz.

I will echo the support for your goals, mine include actually getting a functioning miggy 1200 tower out of all the bits I have lying around..... I can also empathise with seuden's floppy drive woes. I have 2 that don't work.

Warning... miggy aspirations can prove to be rather expensive

Floppy drives are a pain in the backside... Loving WHDLoad and CF with IDE! I can get virtually nothing to run via floppy except PD!

For some reason I feel I will never live to see Amiga Inc. and Hyperion get over the lawsuit! Therefore OS4 will always be on the overpriced sam440ep, and not on an iBook.

Nobody here has an excuse for still having problems getting floppy drives working with their Amiga(s).

These two very useful threads have all the information needed to get PC floppy drives working with Amigas:
