Hi Mark. I haven't used a real CD-ROM for more than a decade, but looking inside the AmiKit archive, there is CD0 driver located in AmiKit:Storage/DOSDrivers. It uses L:CacheCDFS filesystem, which I believe is part of AmigaOS3.9. So, if you used OS3.9 to install AmiKit, the CacheCDFS files should be present in L: folder and thus the CD0 DOSDriver should activate the CD-ROM, hopefully.

Hi, i think i used Amiga OS 3.1.4 to install Amikit XE, it's been a bit since i installed amikit XE over a year ago, i do have idefix-97 but they is no installer for it.

I've just re-activated your download link - just in case you'd like to re-install your AmiKit. I mean the OS3.9 is still better (and on the Vampire even more stable) system than OS3.1.4. IMHO.

Yes, the LZX archive is around 329MB. There's an image file too, but perhaps you purchased AmiKit when the image file was not offered yet. Let me fix it for you.

No uzip. It's an .xz archive directly accepted by balenaEtcher.
