Creating & writing to .adf & .hdf files

Postby LoneHaranguer » Sun Nov 29, 2015 8:38 pm

I have an AmigaOne X1000 running OS 4.1, and I have recently bought an FPGA Arcade Replay board.

The Arcade Replay when running an Amiga core can access .adf files and .hdf files. It can't access any other file type.

Is there a way to create these files and write to them under Amiga OS 4.x? I know that I could use WinUAE or Total Commander under Windows, but using a PC to allow one Amiga to communicate with another seems like giving up ...

To create uninitialised .adf files you can use mkfile:
http://os4depot.net/index.php?function= ... mkfile.lha

In a CLI type:
mkfile blah.adf 880kb

Then mount it in diskimage.device in one of the IDFx: drives, do a quick format on the disk and then do whatever you want with it.
