HOW TO Unpack An ADF
[ Back To The Selection Page ]
Introduction To Tutorial

This tutorial will show you how to convert all those ADF images you found on the internet back to real life solid 3D Amiga disks and use them on your real Amiga - better than an emulator? ... you decide.

I hope this tutorial proves useful.


You will need the following to follow this tutorial:

  • A real Amiga (A500+ or higher)
  • Kickstart 2.0 (or higher)
  • ADF Blitzer
  • 1MB Free RAM (1.5MB Recommended)
  • LHA for the Amiga
  • LHA for the PC

Once you have all of the above proceed to the guide.


The first thing you need to do is download ADF Blitzer and transfer it to your Workbench disks, follow these steps:

  • Unzip ADF Blitzer
  • Place it on a 720KB blank disk
  • Load Workbench
  • Open the SYSTEM folder
  • Double click Shell/AmigaDOS or CLI (depending on your version of Workbench)

The following window should pop-up:

In this new window type:

  • MOUNT PC0:

This will enable you to read 720KB formatted floppy disks, now insert the disk with ADF Blitzer stored on it and copy it to your Workbench disk. You will also need to copy the ADF image onto a 720KB disk and copy this to your RAM: drive, now before you start - I know that ADF images are over 720KBs in size so you will need to use the PC version of LHA to compress the file and the Amiga version of LHA to uncompress this file on your Amiga.

Once all the above is finished the final steps are pretty easy so:

  • Open the drive or folder you copied ADF Bliter to and double click the file named ADFBLITZER
  • Insert a blank Amiga Disk and click the button labelled WRITE (see below)

Now on the next screen select your ADF file (RAM drive) and click OK

Click OK & That's it! - you have just unpacked your first ADF image.
