If you want to use the CF cards as CD32 drives "emulation", you need to edit the cfd.device to use Fast File System instead FAT16/FAT32.

Then use an Amiga emulator (like WinUAE) to copy the CD contents to the (formatted as Amiga FFS) Compact Flash.

You don't have a floppy drive in your pc?:Doh: To get started that is the most easy way..:blink:

If it is a lot of data you could just use WINUAE to. There should be some interesting sticky's for you in the amioracle section to.

You could prep a complete system this way. The only part that I alway's do on the amiga is partition and format it, afterwards winuae can install the rest using adf's, shared drives, etc....
