I don't need fuses in the fileĀ becauseĀ fuses are determined but bootloader and you can't change them later.
Fuses are out of the 32K region. That's why I added them because without padding, I couldn't get the full 32K. Adding fuses, which are out of that range, allowed dd to copy 32K.

Exactly, conv=sync does the padding. I read the man page but I didn't see it.

Thank you very much.
