New to CDTV

Hi,

I've just acquired a CDTV. I need some advice. It not did come with system disks or other software.

Do you need additional s/w to play audio CDs? I thought that was in ROM.

TIA.

Saw this link when I searched for CDTV manual .

Downloaded a PDF from the archive. Unfortunately, I didn't find the answer to my question. I'm going to watch a video of the welcome disk on YouTube, see if that helps.

To play music CDs you don't need anything extra, just put the disk in and play.

You will need a CD caddy for the disks, did you get any with the CDTV?

You can also add an external floppy drive to play games.

Yes, I did get caddies.

Just thinking about this....

Did the CDTV come with any OS or did you have to buy the External Floppy and a set of WB disks?

No, you had to buy the prokit if you wanted to use it like an A500.

@Arnie, are you asking a question or asking amiga88?
As it could be taken both ways, .
