Question Using Virtual Floppy Drive Using IPF files

Hi!!
I just want to use a virtual floppy drive to use the SPS ipf files on a real CD32
They are some Virtual FD but none of them seems to handle IPF files with or without the library needed....
Any idea???
I don't want to write ALL the IPF files on a real disk because empty Amiga Floppy's are expensive nowadays.......
So what can you suggests me????
Thanks

1) You cannot write IPF files back to floppy even if you wanted to

2) Most IPF files are of non DOS disks so a virtual floppy disk program would be useless.

3) Convert your IPF files into WHDload files using WinUAE (http://www.whdload.de) most of these will run from CD32 (all will run if you have fast RAM)

4) If you use WHDload, register it. It is cheap and you WILL get your moneys worth!

Question: What do you want to do this for?

You cannot use a "Virtual floppy" to run games.
