The A1Floppy thread

Subject: The A1Floppy thread
by tonyw on 2006/12/24 23:02:38

OK, since this is the first time that the floppy driver has been released, some people are going to have trouble with it. I'll offer help and answer questions here.


Q1: Why can't I read my <insert name of game> floppies?
A1: The XE hardware can not read Amiga-format floppies. There is support for Amiga filesystem (FFS2) on PC-formatted floppies, this will let you read/write floppies on either an A1 or a Classic. See the docs on the CD.

Q2: So-and-so managed to get his PC to read Amiga floppies, why can't we?
A2: He isn't using the VIA 686B Southbridge chip that we have in the XE. It can't read them.

Q3: Does it click?
A3: If you ask it to.

Any more questions?
