Transferring larger files to an Amiga 3000

Post by schombi » Tue Feb 04, 2020 8:16 pm

Is there a way to utilize a HxC to transfer *.lha files (larger than a usual ADF) from PC to an Amiga 3000? I was experimenting with split tools, such as HJSplit and then create multiple small files and convert them to HFE, but it didn´t work. As this is on an Amiga 3000, which has SCSI, I cannot simply use a CF adapter for IDE or PCMCIA, as one would do on an A1200.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Hmm, with the given information it seems to be too much for the poor-minded, like me. I managed to copy over the hxcfe utility to the Amiga and I can execute it, list the parameters etc. What I didn´t get: How do I copy over e.g. an LHA file to a FAT32 USB stick, so it can get read and copied by the utility? When I try a HXCFE DIR DF0: there are no files shown.

The thing with the mentioned "HxC Floppy Emulator file selector" I don´t understand at all. Is it required or are just parts of it used in the Hxcfe Tool?

I need to add that I´m using FlashCopy/USB stick. Is that even supported by the hxcfe tool? In worst case I could use my cased HxC on the Amiga, but would like to have a 1:1 floppy replacement.

I bought it a while ago,

Anyway, with some help I got it sorted. I tried
hxcfe dir df0:
where it should have been
hxcfe dir
only.

Maybe that´s also useful for other HxC users.
