NTRawrite Home Page
This is the (minimal) home page for NTRawrite, a replacement for Rawrite that runs under Windows NT and Windows 2000.
The current version of NTRawrite is 1.0.1, and it was released on 4/20/01. The README is here, and it's shockingly similar to this document that you are reading.
NTRawrite has been through three releases, and the only reported bug was that if the image file size was different than the diskette capacity, which was fixed in 1.0.1.
The reason I wrote NTRawrite is because Rawrite/Rawrite3 didn't work under NT half the time, and I didn't really want to figure out why. I looked at the source, and found out that:
So it turns out that my emulated emulated calls weren't working for some reason, which deterred me from trying to research what my problem was any further, since the likelihood of anyone sympathizing with my plight was near zero. I gave up and wrote NTRawrite, which didn't take that long.
Why It's Better
I have added:
usage: NTRawrite [--noverify] [--reverse] [-n] [-h] [-f image_file] [-d drive] --noverify Skips verification step. --reverse Saves diskette to image file instead. -n Don't wait for the user to insert a diskette. -f image_file Disk image file to place on diskette. -d drive Drive specifier to put diskette image on. -h Display usage.
