This program is designed to write a raw disk image to a removable device or backup a removable device to a raw image file. It is very useful for embedded development, namely Arm development projects (Android, Ubuntu on Arm, etc). Anyone is free to branch and modify this program. Patches are always welcome.
Please do not use the reviews area for questions or bugs, as I have no way of responding to them.

- Raw reading and writing to removable media
This software just overwrote my external USB hardrive, an 1TB WD MyBook.. First time I started it, it listed only my usbcard readers, second time, it listed only one usbcard reader, and my external drive (which was not listed first time), and selected the external drive first.. So beware of this thing.. And now I'm looking for something to rescue my drive..
It warns that "writing to a physical device [a Kingston DT101 flash disk d:] may corrupt it" but what else is the purpose of the software? ...and then it goes on to corrupt the flash disk. So, not much use, then.
Sorry to say but on my laptop I cannot write image to sd card, as I cannot select SDhost adapter where my SD card resides. Windows Vista see my SD card, and I can use id as disk with no problems. This program shows empty selection box for device. If I put in USB flash disk it shows as location where I can write Image, but SD card is not available.
