The slot is NOT upside down, it's only on the reverse side. If you plug in something upside down, you will likely...

For this reason, they will be somewhat unreliable as a DD storage medium. Add...

You have a way to image the disk?

DeluxePaint was released at the same time as the Amiga 1000, so the internal tool called "Prism" definitely was never released. This is a different program.

Just FYI, this seems to require 1M RAM (512k chip/512k slow, or 1M chip) where the original ran in 512k.
