hi all,

i found an old amiga floppy disk with my best player manager team on it. However, when i try and load it using DF0 in winua i get the message that it needs to be formatted. However, if i format it would i lose the data that is on the disk?

if so, is there any other way that i can load the pm team from the disk.

Thanks for any assistance

Do not format it!
The PC floppy disk drive can't read the amiga floppy.
You need to read it with a real amiga and then convert it to an .adf file or send it to someone that can if you don't have your amiga.

Hi Stainy,

I would definately like to have my floppy disk converted. Unfortunately i gave my amiga away years ago.

I live in Birmingham,UK.

thanks

One of the hard disk equipped Amiga owners of UK should step up, if you send him the disk he will be able to convert it to an ADF easily.

I dont have a hard drive, just a plain A1200. Is a HDD really essential? Not sure if I've created an ADF before!

I suppose doing it without a hard disk is possible but much, much more difficult. If nobody else steps up and Bigfoot doesn't mind shipping to Greece, I can take care of it.

I have
