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.
This release is for Windows 7/8.1/10. It will should also work on Windows Server 2008/2012/2016 (although not tested by the developmers). For Windows XP/Vista, please use v0.9 (in the files archive).
Warning: Issues have been reported when using to write to USB Floppy drives (and occasionally other USB devices, although very rare). While this has been fixed in v1.0, 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.
Currently, the program will crash if you are using a Ramdisk. This is being debugged.
- Raw reading and writing to removable media
NOT BRICKED: your USB is was and never will be bricked unless youre too stupid to read... you need to use dd to write another file table after using the drive as a boot device. YOURE A FUCKING IDIOT LERN2GOOGLE YOU MORON
Works sometimes, did corrupt about three USBS which I had to chuck out because they were f**ked, THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED.
Cannot get win32 to write to sd card. No errors simulates as if writing but in the end sd card is blank. Have tried on 3 separate computers and always the same. Tried in Safe Mode no difference. Use to work fine. Windows 10 Pro 64bit
The reference for img flashing on Windows. Works well! But, on a multi-partition USB stick/SD card, it's unclear if it is flashing on the whole device or not.
Theres is a portable version? Thank you.
