need help transfering files

First off all please excuse my english.

After 5 years of searching i finally found and buy an amiga A600. I only found the computer itself, the psu, mouse and an external floppy with db25 male cable. I only tested by plugin the monitor because i dont have the workbench disk or any games. Before register here i search the internet for solutions but i didnt find any straight answers.
You have to know that:
- i dont have 780kb floppy and i cant find a source to buy here
- i manage to to make a null modem cable i know a bit about electronics.
My problem is that i want to play games on this device and i need a way to send them from my pc to amiga. i prefer to do that with the phisical connection with the null cable. Without amiga workbench?
Thank you

Hi Scolioza, welcome to EAB.

Any PC disks will work with the Amiga but you will need Workbench to format them as 880k.

To transfer files from the PC to Amiga via null cable will be easier if you install a CF adapter and CF card to use as a HardDrive.

Try http://www.amibay.com/ or http://www.amigakit.com/ for the hardware.

You don't need a Workbench. You get a boot disk with ADF writing tools and the PCMCIA CF drivers, if you buy one on these ADF transfer kits.

You need a cheap cardreader for your PC, e.g. a 6 in 1 for Compact Flash, SD card etc. Copy all ADF files on the Compact Flash card, plug the card into your PCMCIA Amiga adapter, use the bootdisk and start writing back the games with EasyADF.
