    I searched and found a short discussion on this, but..

    Many computer platforms have software that can read amiga floppy disks with a standard PC floppy drive.

    What about Powerbook G4 and usb floppy?

    I still hae a lot of floppy disks and , no, it is all not available from ADF files.

    It is not really true. It is achieved either by hacking drive hardware, or by using special FDD controller on a card, like CatWeasel. Both methods play directly with drive signals, which is in my opinion impossible with USB drive.

    But ?I guess that a standard floppy connected straight on the Pegasos 1/2 controller would be supported on MorphOS right? (Not for reading Amiga disks but standard formatted PC floppies).
