DISK IO RAW copy

DISK IO RAW copy

(OP)
I am wondering if VB .NET can do this.

I have an older computer that uses an SD card. (not a windows file system)

What I want:

  • take an entire image of the card (RAW) and put it in a disk image file (Similar to how WinImage takes disk and copies to disk images.)
  • I want to restrict it to SD, MicroSD and CF cards.
  • Select between 256 and 512 byte sector size
  • Read the image and write directly to the SD card in RAW format
I have heard that vb .net will not directly do this without some tricks. Can this be done with vb .net ?


RE: DISK IO RAW copy

Have you tried using the WinImage SDK?

The link for the 8.5 version is broken, but the 8.1 version is still live. In the .zip file, there are VB .NET samples.
