need more Amiga 1200
« on: December 21, 2002, 12:19:50 AM »
1) If I download a bunch of amiga files from the net( say.. amiga demos) and burn them on a CD using my PC, will I be able to read them on my Amiga CD drive?

2) Will Amiga OS 3.5 work if I unplug my CD drive after I am done installing the OS ? Or does it need one to work.

Thanks in advance!

The reason I asled about OS3.5 is because I heard OS3.9 needs a CD Drive to boot, even after instalation.

I can hardly imagine that being true, anyway OS3.5 doesn't need a CD-ROM =).

That is not correct.  (Or at least not on my Amiga4000 - I can boot 3.9 without CD, and in fact do quite often.)

It WILL generate an error, though, unless you remove the CD0: icon from your DEVS/DOSDrivers drawer, however.  (Removing this ICON simply tells the OS not to look for a CD Rom.)

Cool!

That helped clear things up.

Thanks again.
