 | What kind of Windows (NT, 2000, 95?)
 | I seem to remember a good bit of trouble getting fdimage to work
 | on certain hardware under Windows NT (although it's been a while).
 | fdimage has a number of command line switches ... one of them
 | solved the problem.  I seem to remember something about single-
 | sector writing or something (it's been a while)
 | Don't know if this is your problem or not, but report the OS that
 | you're creating the images from, and check out 'fdimage /?' (I
 | believe) will give you a list of switches and their meanings.

i used a program called ntrawrite.exe. worked like a charm. win2k.
