PC app that reads/writes to Amiga-formatted card in card reader?

Stupid question, maybe - but are there apps that like WinUAE can r/w access CF cards?

Ideally, I'd just right-click a file and "put on my FFS-volume please", either in a file browser or a web browser.

Alternately, an app that has two folders (PC and Amiga) set up and syncs them both ways with a click - or by the insertion of an Amiga-formatted volume (option).

If there's a commandline command available (SF?) for Windows I'd be happy to make a slim wrapper, sync, decompress etc, I think this would be way cool.

Never thought about this since WinUAE boots so fast I don't mind using it for these purposes.

Having a software that mounts any type of Amiga volume in the system like Macdrive does with Mac volumes, would be most helpful, though.

You can do this with linux. You can mount the Amiga filesystem like any other file system to read/write to.

Jimbo, I suspected that - a Linux box in Windows, or rebooting, to copy a file is a bit overkill though. Exists a port? What's needed is really copy, delete, and mount.

Akira, yes. Of course that's how I do it today, booting, navigating to the same places in Diskmaster and finding that file, select, copy button etc. A separate WinUAE installation with an auto-starting config and startup-sequence, with no fps-cap. That could be worth mucking about with

Hmm... I actually like this more and more, thanks Akira! No complex mixture of loose components, no multiple programs accessing the CF card using potentially slightly different filesystem-implementations. Without a decent CLI sync-program you'd be stuck with "copy A:myPCdir B:myAmigaDir" in startup-sequence, but it could be useful enough perhaps. I'll try that first and see how it goes.

WOW, I didn't know that!
How is it possible? How can Linux mount & access the Amiga filesystem?

Yes, the same way you mount the filesystem for PUAE to read/write (unless they have another way now)
