Amiga 500 floppies transfer to MBP 2012 Lion?

Hello all !

I hope i'm asking in the right place, If not i apologies for my luck of knowledge.

Ok I'v got like over 100 original floppy games from the Commodore Amiga 500.
Is it possible to transfer these floppies onto my Macbook Pro latest edition 2012 Lion ?
Or can i just get some external USB floppy reader to them work on my MBP ?

I got emulators running though some games i cannot find on the web and would like to transfer them onto my MBP.

And another question regarding the amazing sounds Amiga games use to have, Is there like an actual synthesiser that produces these sounds that i can buy?
Or are there any plug-ins that contain these sounds for the use of music production ?

Thanks in advance !

There's no way to read Amiga floppies directly...
You could get a Kryoflux, which is a USB device that you can connect a PC floppy drive to and then create images.
I have one and it's great for archiving, etc..
Not sure it's the best choice for the casual fan, but you can take a look.

If you have disks that aren't in the SPS (Software Preservation Society) IPF archive, a Kryoflux would be nice so you can create full images to send it to be archived...
It does have Mac software..

The other option would be serial, but I'm not aware of any Mac software to use for that, and copy protected disks can be an issue...

KryoFlux will also get a raw writing mode, writing stream files ingested earlier. This will be a nice tool to play around with, although writing raw is not what you'd want in the first place.

Thanks for the replies people.

I'll have to check through the giant list of SPS will take some time lol
Seems like Kryoflux is the right tool for me.

Nobody knows about the sounds ?

Cheers all !
