Default CDTV and CD32 game backup

Hi!

I wonder if its possible to do backup CDs of games to the Amiga CDTV and CD32? If yes, how can it be done? In a normal CD-writer on the PC?

Glad for awser =)

well i dont know about pc but on amiga its very possible , with makecd etc.

the cds aint special , just the bootblock and the bootblock is only if you create new iso's , ie if u do a classic colly for your cd32.

cheers

It is possible to create bootable Amiga CDs under WinUAE on a PC but you will need MakeCD which you can download a demo version from Aminet, the CDTV or CD32 boot code from a Developer CD. There is a tutorial on creating bootable Amiga CDs at

I used to make a boot screen for floppy disks using the old shell thingy for all my fav PD games.
wouldnt a simple menu be able to boot from the CD like shown on that websites tutorial?

its quick and simple but doesnt look that hot. at least it gets the job done. i.e.
"enter 1 to run SplayWarriors"
"enter 2 to run SuperJubblies" etc..

reminds me of the 80s :-)
