The copies on floppy disks should behave as floppy disks.  :)

If you mean edit an .adf so that correct file types are set (writable, editable, deletable) then you have to use something that can read the files as a usb stick / sd card with files on, like a regular PC running Windows or Linux).

Technically you could use an Amiga with a "real" usb port or sd card reader. (Which ever medium used by the floppy emulator).

Is the hard drive one big partition and not even half full? That can cause some software to misread the free space available as negative (would generate "drive is full" message even though it isn't).

OK, there are replacement Workbench commands on 3.1.4 that work correctly (list, dir, info etc) but the game could be using it's own code which would have the same issue.

Filling up the partition with stuff so it's at least half full removes the problem on old Workbench software. Might work with the game trying to save to hard drive, might not.

EDIT: I'm assuming you are running your 4gb CF card as a hard drive and haven't upgradaed to something larger. There is some software that only likes running / operating on the first 4GB of any Amiga hard drive. For instance, PC Task and shapeshifter.

It’s trying to save the games to the hard drive.

I have placed the ADF files on actual Amiga floppy disks,

Can I still edit these files? If so how do I go about it?

ThoR, Thomas Rupp... easy mistake to make.

The snag with installing MMULibs is people choose "expert" when they aren't one, from what I gather. Too many options, because it's trying to cover every Amiga with a 68020 processor or higher.

@Tygre
I am still wondering why you wish to send Ctrl+F to programs, I don't know of any software that handles that as "quit", do you?

Yes, I meant CTRL+C, good catch and thank you for your contribution!

Are you trying to save to hard drive or floppy?

If you try to save or modify files on a virtual floppy via Gotek - the .adf file must be editable (protection bits rwed). Else the Gotek will not permit edits.

You can't fix from the Amiga side. ADF downloads default to archived status, ie the files are not editable.

There are .adfs of blank floppy disks, these can have the same issue.

EDIT: This is a good thing really, a virus cannot earsily spread from one contaminated ADF file to another if the file is read only, not writable, editable or deletable.

Firstly, do you know where it's trying to save to?

Can you provide the full message if there is more as well?
