Re: [NTLK] Zapped Flash Card...HELP!

I have a dual PCMCIA card slot and software.

This is a low level reader/writer that allows me to read or write on a byte by byte basis.

This means that I can backup any card regardless of format.

I just create an image file of the card. This can be written back to a card at a later date. Backup like this takes
about a minute for a 20MB card.

Duplication is made trivial. I have 4 Newtons and once an image file is made I have four identical cards in under 5

Also, rom cards can be backed up if you use a card with no attribute memory to copy to.

However, cost might be a factor for some people and it assumes a basic level of competency.

Anyway, it all works just fine.
