    Thanks for your replys. Tsgui was a good idea, but when I try it in the installation mode, it doesn't start. Looks like I will download a copy of wb.

    Perhaps WB's own diskcopy tool can copy it to a floppy disk which you can then dump.

    Ok, I found a workaround.

    1. Boot into Install Mode
    2. Copy files from virtual drive to floppy disk by drag and drop (don't forget to show all files)
    3. Boot into WB3.1 installation on cf card
    4. Create an adf-file with tsgui from floppy disk

    Hi,

    Just a question that I don't seem to find an answer to:

    Does the ACA500Plus support the use of memory expansions of more than 512kb on a A500, like the ones that use a Gary board?

    Thanks if anyone has the information on this.

    Some will work partly (e.g. function as a regular 512k expansion) while others does not work with it. Officially those expansions are not supported.

    There has been a discussion about it in this thread:
