Amiga ADF Transfer Service
Do you need to write an ADF file to a real Amiga floppy disk?
So you want to dump an ADF file back to a real Amiga disk? but either don't have the equipment or knowledge? We're here to help.
We can take any standard ADF file that you have and write it back to either a true Double Sided Double Density disk or to a High-Density disk (still fully readable on your Amiga). We can even custom print monochrome disk labels for you... Just tick the box below.
So if you have error-free game or software ADF files but would love to use it on your real Amiga then we're happy to help.
Simply enter your details and requirements, we'll then calculate the costs and send you a payment request and an email telling you how to upload your ADF files for us... Once payment is received we'll transfer your ADF file/ to either original DSDD Amiga disk or DSHD disk/s for you.
This is a no-obligation quote and payment request... If you change your mind before payment is made, then that's fine.
A little about ADF files.
Amiga Disk File (ADF) is a file format used by Amiga computers and emulators to store images of disks. It has been around almost as long as the Amiga itself, although it was not initially called by any particular name. Before it was known as ADF, it was used in commercial game production, backup and disk virtualization. ADF is a track-by-track dump of the disk data as read by the Amiga operating system, and so the "format" is really fixed-width AmigaDOS data tracks appended one after another and held in a file. This file would, typically, be formatted, like the disk, in OFS. ADF files can only store non copy-protected disks like public-domain, data or 'cracked' games.
Most ADF files are plain images of the Amiga-formatted tracks held on cylinder 0 to 79 of a standard 3.5-inch (89 mm) double-density floppy disk, also called an 880 KB disk in Amiga terms. The size of an ADF will vary depending on how many tracks have been imaged, but in practice it is unusual to find ADF files that are not 901,120 bytes in size (80 cylinders × 2 heads × 11 sectors × 512 bytes/sector).
Most Amiga programs were distributed on double-density floppy disks. There are also 3.5-inch high-density floppy disks, which hold up to 1.76 MB of data, but these are uncommon.
The WinUAE Amiga emulator supports all three disk formats, but 3.5-inch double-density is the most common.
ADF files can be downloaded and copied to Amiga disks with the use of such software as EasyADF and other applications freely available on the Internet.
There is a program called ADF Opus, which is a Microsoft Windows–based program that allows people to create their own ADF files.
