amiga 500 - Hard drive options - Virtual?
« on: January 28, 2010, 01:43:35 PM »
I have an amiga 500 with no hard drive as I'm sure many do.

I looked into the options which are not many. I guess the best option is that mod from finland that gives you amiga 600 type ide controller.

Before I did that I wondered, isn't there isn't a null modem to pc
cable and software I can use to make a virtual hard drive on pc that the 500 can access?

Any suggestions, I'm all ears. Problem is that I have no catweasel and no way to get software from the net or wherever into the 500, so I'm kind of stuck in place with it.

One other thing, is there a ppp dialer or some  other way for the amiga 500 to get to the net, dialup would be fine for most things.

This is why I think a virtual hard drive on pc would be better, even if I got a hard drive how to connect to the net well enough to find software and all that...

Thanks,

Steven
