Hi Andy4sandy, I may be able to help you. I'll send you a PM later today after I've caffeinated.
I can tell you that I was once in your shoes, however, and learning how to make Amiga disks is a key thing to figure out (there are multiple ways, of course, for transferring files).
Here's how I do it old school
with my Amiga 2000.
Here is a short video
where I explain the process, too.
But those articles aren't 100% applicable for the old A1000 since she typically doesn't have a hard drive. I'll make disks with my 2000 and use them on my various 1000 machines.
I'll send you a PM in a bit. (FWIW, getting a hard drive on an A1000 is the least straight-forward of all of the Amigas if you stick with the original 1.3 Kickstart, but a worthy endeavor for sure).
