How does one "mount" a file as a removable drive on Windows XP?
Windows Dd freeware does a bit-for-bit faithful copy of a flash drive,
which I performed, but what I ended up was with a file:
C:\tmp>dd if=\\.\f: of=\\.\c:\flashcard.img --progress
Now I wish to "mount" that resulting file as a removable disk.
How would one mount the file "flashcard.img" as a removable disk in WinXP?
I see you have been active lately and posting to the boards. I guess
it's been long enough since you did your last the last few major
How many people you can sucker into this one? As usual, posters will
be able to hover around helping and then you can add a bit more to
your problem and get them to try and solve that and then afterwards
you can add a bit more or complicate the picture by saying what
unexpected errors you hit. And so on. Finally, once you have drawn
the poor helpful posters into a long and protected debate for as long
you can and you have taken the subject into some obscure technical
corner .. you tell them the answer! Heh heh! Nice the payoff moment
for all your careful work.
Of course, it isn't quite over at that point. If the suckers (er, I
mean, helpful posters) realize what's happened then can't be baited
all over again. So you profusely thank them all for their tremendous
input ... and then soon after start all over again.
It's always interesting to watch your masterful baiting unfold.
I must apologize because you won't want to let this post of mine spoil
your plans. I'll expect your reply perhaps along the lines of
"I'm only seeking information and knowledge, what's
wrong with that, I need help, poor me, I'm only a little
old lady trying to learn about the Internet/domestic
appliances/ heating/air conditioning, oh it's so
confusing, don't be nasty I want nice people to answer,
Very rewardingly, you sometimes manage to get the more easily duped
posters to post a defense for you! Heh heh. Lovely! Bring a smile
