How to Seek on Physical Drive

Post by mvandere » 15 Jul 2010 09:53

I am trying to seek on an opened physical drive ('\\.\PhysicalDrive0') which is an SD card

I find that some SD card adapters do not support FileSeek, at least thats what the error code from the FileSeek command says.

Some Adapters work fine.

Does anyone have an example that seeks for all adapters?

Thanks

Do you seek in units of sectors? That's the most compatible way to access drives.
Does it work in HxD?

Of course HxD works :D

Yes, you are right if Iseek in multiples of sectors it works for all my adapters. Funny how some don't enforce alignment
