[Adfread 1.1] Question

Hi,

I was downloading the new WinUE thingy. I saw a file called [Adfread 1.1] that apparently can transfer Ami discs to the PC via 2 * floppies?

Wondering if that could work with 2 * USB floppies. I've seen some cheep floppies on Amazon - not certain if that would work, being PC disc based?

Thanks, and a Merry Christmas to you all

hi,

i think this will not work (99.98%). last time I was using this method, i had two drive on one cable,
connected to a motherboard floppy controller.
and the latter is the issue, the program access the floppy controller directly, manipulating the read speed
of those drives connected.
long storry ... this will probably not work with usb drives.
nevertheless, the results of adfread were really good for those standard non protected floppies.

have a good time
