Well if you have a stock A500 with just 1MB of RAM its a bit hard to do. I used to do it all the time with my A500. The best way is to get a serial null modem link going and use the amiga2PC network utility. I dont remember the exact name but I'm sure someone here does. What you need to do is set it up to read off the pc floppy drive and just use "tsgui" from aminet to write the .adf file back to a real amiga disk.

The other way ony if you have a more powerfull A500 with more then 1MB of ram is simular. I took a null modem link and used jrcomm (a terminal program) and used teraterm on the PC to send the adf to ram on the amiga 500, then used TSGUI again.

That depends on the speed of his PC.

Besides which...why do you need more speed for old A500 games? :-D

Hello. Would being able to read a PC disk in your Amiga help? I have a utility here to do that. It worked on my A500+, but looking at the readme file with it, I can`t make out if it will work on your A500. I can email it to you if you want? Its not great, and I seem to remember theres a bit of a tactic to using it, but its the only thing I`ve ever found which works on the older OSes. Its not command line, and now I think about it its a bit OS1.x.

Nope.

Perhaps this may be worth a look.
