[vcf-midatlantic] Amiga 2000 Getting files onto floppy disk

Here’s the adapter that you need to make a Gotek external:


As to moving single files, using a Gotek, it’s easy. You just make an Amiga
disk image, on your PC, containing whatever files you want, and then put
the image on the thumb drive. Put the thumb drive into the Amiga, and you
can then mount that image as df1:, and copy files off of it.

Hope that helps!
