It is generally not legal to download ROMs or disk images of software for systems like the Amiga unless you own the original physical copies of the software and are creating copies for your own personal use. If you own physical copies of Amiga software and want to create ROMs or disk images for use with an emulator, you can do so using specialized software and hardware. Here are the general steps for creating an Amiga ROM:
- Obtain a device called a “ROM dumper” that is capable of reading the ROMs from your Amiga cartridges. These devices are available from some electronics retailers or online.
- Connect the ROM dumper to your computer and follow the instructions provided to create a copy of the ROM from the cartridge.
- Use an Amiga emulator or other software to open the ROM file and run the software.
It is important to note that distributing ROMs or disk images of copyrighted software without permission is illegal in most countries, even if you own the original copies of the software.
If you are looking for legal Amiga downloads, there are a number of websites that offer legal downloads of Amiga software, including games, utilities, and other applications. Some options include the Internet Archive (https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_amiga), C64.com (https://www.c64.com/games), and the Homebrew C64 Software List (https://www.c64-wiki.com/index.php/Homebrew_C64_Software_List). It is always important to respect the copyright holders of software and only download or use software that you have obtained legally.
