-1? That shouldn't show up... Which OS are you using? For me, the CF card
is always device 1 (one IDE HD only which is 0 here). physdiskwrite
refuses to write to disks > 800 MB for some overwrite protection, but as I
stated it on the page: there's NO WARRANTY at all, so if you do wipe out
your HD, don't blame me for it. Other than that, you'll have to tell from
the C/H/S values which one is your CF card...

I'm really looking for a better way of identifying the devices (e.g. by
manufacturer/model name), but I haven't discovered a way to do that yet.
