Did the file exist before running that command? If so, camdd will look at the file size and not write any more than the current file size. If the file doesn't exist, it'll stop writing when it reaches the end of the input, or it gets a write error, or it reaches the specified I/O limit (-m argument). It also looks like there is a bug; the command above is attempting to read 0 bytes starting from one sector beyond the last logical block. > [fk@kendra ~]$ diskinfo -v /dev/da0 > /dev/da0 > 512 # sectorsize > 4048551936 # mediasize in bytes (3.8G) > 7907328 # mediasize in sectors > 0 # stripesize > 0 # stripeoffset > 492 # Cylinders according to firmware. > 255 # Heads according to firmware. > 63 # Sectors according to firmware. > AA00000000000958 # Disk ident. > > It works as expected when writing to stdout, though, so this is > probably just a camdd-internal issue: > > [fk@kendra ~]$ sudo camdd -i pass=da0,bs=65536,mcs=10 -o file=- > > /dpool/scratch/blafasel.img > (pass2:umass-sim0:0:0:0): READ(10).

Great! I'll see if I can fix the bug that is causing the zero length read at the end. Thank you for testing it!
