Hi Is it possible to format a Flash drive as a Amiga drive & copy the Amiga onto it? Thanks Hugh

Do you mean a compact flash you insert into the PCMCIA slot ?  Or an IDE flash drive on the IDE port inside ?

For flash on IDE then yes sure it will work
On PCMCIA .. I doubt it ... be nice to be proved wrong though :-)

Looking at flash drive/memory stick via the USB port on a PC.
Thanks Hugh

I wonder what you want to use it for. If your Amiga has USB, it can read PC-formatted media as well. And if it does not have USB, the stick is of no use for anything.

Bye,

It is possible, my a3000 boots off a flash drive (with a deneb)

Perhaps I have worded it incorrectly. What I want to know is can I install the whole emulation on the memory stick? Unplug it take it to another PC plug in & go into the emulation on another PC that does not have any Amiga things installed. Thks

Yes, you should be able to fit all of the AmigaForever 2008 CD on to a USB thumbdrive and take it from one PC to another and boot into the Amiga emulation from it.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)
