You can get brand new DSDD disks from Amigakit.

Thanks for all your help, guys. I bit the bullet and bought a new..well, secondhand pc...40 quid for a 2.3GHz 250MB RAM 40GB XP...which had just appeared in a local shop. Carried it all the way home, which was no easy task! Whacked WinUAE 36 on it and I'm satisfied at that. Tearawy Thomas was no longer invisible! As he has been on DosFellow.

I won't be trying to put adfs onto floppy or anything of that nature anymore, its done my head in though I did learn a lot. I'll keep the 600 and 1200 machines in case i run across original amiga games on my travels. If i can confirm the accelerator actually works by using showconfig as someone suggested I'll probably offer it for trade..desperately want a cd32 or 3DO again.

I have no intention of using the 1200 for serious apps and as I'm satisfied at the moment with WinUAE, there wouldn't be much point hanging onto the accelerator.

I`m tempted to swap accel for a cd32

good buy on that pc, nice upgrade and about time too as you can run winuae now, might be a good idea to get some more memory for it though not to mention a bigger HD

oh the joys of upgrading, ribbit ribbit ribbit

I might have missed something, but why not going via DMS ?
I mean, mount your ADF in whatever UAE that is working on Amiga. DMS READ it on your HD then DMS WRITE it on a floppy.
Sounds way too simple when reading the above comments. However, I've done that myself and it works all right.
