Enter: The Greaseweazle - Episode 112

 This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am reviewing the fantastic GreaseWeazle Version 4 from Kiers Fraser and assembled and sold by AmigaKit. This wonderful device allows us to use a PC Floppy drive to read and write Amiga 880 KB floppies and create ADF files. And now we can use it in WinUAE as a real Amiga Floppy! Nifty! Join me in reviewing this product and learning how it works.

Update to WinUAE Beta to read the GreaseWeazle:

Here is some HxC Floppy Emulator software that can be used to convert files.
