Wondering if a free floppy mount tool (adf) exists for amiga. (no nags)

Know that I could add another ide to cf solution (partitions of 880 k) and create partitions and label them like a mad man :mad: Used to install WB 3.1 on my A1200 like that, did go fast :)

Enjoying my A4000, just in process to get a disk box full with working software, but not willing to write all the software I find to floppy, some software/games are usable, others are waste of time:| (in my personal..))

Shoud I use a backup CF install to try all the software? (does the software slows the workbench like windows?)

I still "enjoy" the DVD rom problem, I noticed that there are some zorro (e)ide cards at vesalia.de like this one:

Is this a good possibility to add more ide ports on my 4000? (and have the cf at the back without looking for a to long cable, since the ports are on the zorro ard)

ADF tool: my favourite is a combination of virtual floppy (Aminet) and TS-Gui (same place).

Only running software will slow down an Amiga! Even resident ones which not run all the times will not slow the machine down.

Of course, some packages will add an assign to the already existent ones. And this will eat a little RAM.

I have one of these myself (well, I have the older versions) and I absolutely swear by it. It's a superb card and I've NEVER had any problems.
Also, the internal IDE works with drives >4GB so it's worth having.
