Not neccessarily. You can still write them back to real Amiga disks.

lol its getting a bit to confusing for me, its probably better if i just bought the games instead, considering they're about 4 each, i'd probably spend more money doing it this way.

It seems so. Good luck.

to complete your list correctly:

Quote:
- Get a PCMCIA CF card reader
- Get a CF Card
- Shove CF card into PC (i have a CF card slot in my PC already) and copy .adf or whatever onto it.
- Shove CF card into the PCMCIA CF card reader on Amiga and boot the Amiga with the provided boot disk.
- start the provided disk image writing tools (mostly Tracksaver GUI or ADF-Blitzer) and write the disk images back to real disks.

Well i thought i'd have another shot at this after looking it up.

-Buy the package from amigakit, it contains a PCMCIA CF card adaptor, and easyADF, which seems to be the same as adf-blitzer or whatever its called. Basically a image writing tool

-Get a CF Card, from what i understand, a minimum of 2gb? Or i could be totally wrong

-Get some amiga floppies which i can use to write data from the CF card to the floppies using easyADF?

-Budum i can play the games through proper amiga floppies that i bought?

-Also if the above is correct, what kind of CF card can the PCMCIA reader, read? As the slot on my PC says 'Compact Flash I/II'.

A CF Type I card should work. Amigakit offers a 4GB card, together with the adapter+Easy ADF/Bootdisk. Ask for a smaller (and cheaper) card, it seems to be way too oversized for a plain data transfer solution.
