Hi.

If you mean 'can you read the Amiga disk in PC drive?', then the answer is 'not directly'. There are various methods of reading Amiga disks in PC drives, though and a quick search at www.google.com or through earlier messages on this board should uncover what you need.

If you're just wanting to transfer files, have you considered using a null-modem cable? Speeds aren't lightning-fast; but it is useable - particularly for files, rather than entire disks (although I use it for that, with my A500).

If you need to know about viewing image files on your PC, a few programs that can decode .iff include: Adobe Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro and IrfanView (freeware, www.irfanview.com).

Hope that helps

If you don´t have any Amiga around to read the disks out try this : http://www.oldskool.org/disk2fdi/

But you need a second Disk Drive in your PC to read out Amiga Disks .....

Floppy disk

You can also consider purchasing the "Amiga Explorer" from www.cloanto.com ($19.95 i think).
With this program you can connect your Amiga to your PC and make Amiga disks from ADF images and vice versa.

All you need is a serial cable and a Workbench disk... And an Amiga of course :-)

I have just bought this myself, and i am very happy with it. If you decide to buy it, don't hesitate to contact me if you need help getting it up & running!
