If Windows can mount the thing and see it (IE. By looking in disk mgr for
w2k or XP, then the card is most likely good- The only one not working for
me now is one that is totally lifeless and doesn't even light up my cf
adapter's indicator light when inserted. I un-gunzipped the image on a linux
box then used dd.exe as below for the rest and they were OK.

Linux #-	gunzip -d ./net45xx-1.0.img.gz

Then use dd --list on windows to find your correct CF drive:

Use dd and point of to the correct pointer (omitting the trailing /)

Windows#-	dd if=c:\net45xx-1.0.img
of=\\.\Volume{9d4ee636-cd95-11d5-a97e-806d6172696f} bs=16k


Worked for me. Good luck

The continuing saga of attempting to get this Verbatim 32M CF card to work.
Due to having NO current working Un*x boxes, everything has been done on MS
Windows.

what i tried last night:

D:\utils>dd if=d:\utils\net45xx-1.0.img of=\\.\PhysicalDrive2 bs=16k
rawwrite dd for windows version 0.2.  Written by John Newbigin
<jn at it dot swin dot edu dot au> This program is covered by the GPL.  See copying.txt for
details Error writing file: 87 The parameter is incorrect
257+1 records in
257+0 records out

noted error then re-read Jason's email and noted line about "gunzip"

so downloaded gzip from http://www.gzip.org/
rename the exectable from gzip to gunzip

changed name to net45xx-1.0.img.z
ran gunzip net45xx-1.0.img.z

then
D:\utils>dd if=d:\utils\net45xx-1.0.img of=\\.\PhysicalDrive2 bs=16k

Whoo-hoo, i thought this looks good. But nope still does not boot :( A while
back i installed FreeBSD 4.8 in VMware and tried writing the image in that
(that also did not work, then i somehow screwed the VM disk image, don't ask
:)

so it looks like i will have to go and buy a new card :(, unless someone can
suggest a better method.
