It's -flop, not -flop1

However, in MESSUI no items appear in the "software" tab, so this problem is confirmed.

It's most likely never worked.

No software list is hooked up for the driver at this time as mess -listsoftware ampro shows.
The system itself seems to work fine - loading the image picker style mess ampro -flop1 path\to\ just fine and shows DIR.

Having a software.xml list reference and not having it 'hooked up' to a driver isn't IMHO an emulation flaw.

The Software list was merged from external submission on Sept 3, 2013 by myself at the request of etabeta
The driver was labeled as working just 2 days later, by Robbert, on Sept 5, 2013. Seems to work, just not use the softwarelist yet.

I was unaware of the existence of a software list for the system until this bug was logged. The system is working however I must leave the hooking up of software lists to those who possess the knowledge.

Adding MCFG_SOFTWARE_LIST_ADD("flop_list", "ampro") ?

That seems to work, for some disks. Maybe the others aren't bootable.
