I need to copy a program to an Amiga floppy (Twin Express) but I cannot find a method how to copy it to an amiga disk, the target Amiga is an Amiga 1200 which has a workbench 3.0 system.

Any program for PC I can format a compatible floppy?

Amiga floppy disks cannot be read on PCs without installing additional hardware such as a special floppy disk controller or a second floppy drive. As Amiga users know, this hardware incompatibility has limited Amiga-PC data sharing since the the Amiga was released in the mid-80s, and, although newer software and hardware have helped overcome this limitation, there is no way that software emulation alone can solve it: a PC cannot read Amiga disks using only the default PC floppy disk controller logic attached to a single disk drive.
