This is the ninth part in a series of blog posts. The previous post was Amiga floppy recovery project scope. The next post is FlashFloppy OLED display. The whole series is available here: Amiga.

It's been a while since I've reported on my Amiga floppy recovery project. With my bulky Philips CRT attached I slowly ground through the process of importing all my floppy disks, which is now done. The majority of disks were imported without errors. Commercial disks were the most likely to fail to import. Possibly I'd have more success with them if I used a different copying technique than X-COPY's default, but my focus was not on the commercial disks.

I have not yet restored the use of my LCD TV with the Amiga. I was waiting to hear back from Amiga Kit about an agreed return, but despite their web store claiming they're still open for business, I haven't been able to get any response to my emails to them since mid-February. I've given up, written off that order and bought an RGB/SCART adaptor elsewhere instead. Meanwhile my bulky CRT has returned to the loft.

The next step is pretty boring: time to check over my spreadsheet of disks, the imported copies of them, make sure everything is accounted for and decide whether to make further attempts for any that failed or write them off. For commercial disks it's almost certainly less effort to track down someone else's rip than to try mine again.

After that I can return to moving the Gotek floppy adaptor inside the Amiga case, as described in the last entry, and start playing.
