    Adf

    Hi all.
    I'm looking for some advice regarding Amiga disk files.
    I have dozens and dozens of old Amiga game disks that I can't use anymore because my Amiga hasn't worked for a long time.

    I want to use the games again. I downloaded the latest version of MAME, so I should be able to emulate the Amiga system with my computer.

    However, the Amiga-game disks don't work in my computer. If I put an Amiga disk in my computer's floppy drive, all I get is a pop-up asking me if I want to format the disk (which I don't).

    Is there software that I could download and use to read or copy info from the Amiga-formatted disks?
    If not, is there a way to hack the floppy drive so that it can read the Amiga disks?

    Thanks.
    Andy

    No software will read the disk format. You can buy hardware here:

    Thanks for the links. I guess I'll look around for some appropriate hardware on **** and elsewhere.

    On the other hand, is there a way for me to use my Amiga floppy drive with my PC?
