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.
Warning: Issues have been reported when using to write to USB Floppy drives (and occasionally other USB devices, although very rare). It is highly recommended that before an image is written to a device, the user should do a Read to a temporary file first. If this fails, please report the failure along with your system information (file a new bug, NOT a review).
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
Wrote Linux Mint Cinnamon to USB; worked like a charm. :)
File review Win32DiskImager-0.9.5-install.exe I tried installing on 2 HP laptops running Windows 10 and a desktop Running Windows 10. All three computers failed to install, all3 said "Unable to execute file: c:Program Files (x86)\ImageWriter\Win32DiskImager.exe", "CreateProcess failed;code 740. The requested operation requires elevation." One does not even have a virus protection program.
WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL???!!!! this thing bricked my 32gb memory stick! all i did was loaded a linux ISO, selected my memory stick on F drive and clicked 'Write' It failed and now my PC wont even recognise my memory stick. Thanks a LOT
Used the read function to make an image of a bootable CF card. Used write on a same sized CF card to create a new bootable copy. Painless with perfect results. Thanks so much!
Tends to work great, but when writing image to floppy disk IT WROTE IT ON MY SSD!
