ErikA: 'dd' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Or: dd: /dev/sdg: No such file or directory :) –  SvW Aug 4 '11 at 20:55
    
Hehe. In the case of a question where the OS isn't specified, I just default to linux/BSD. They ought to be using that anyway. :) –  EEAA Aug 4 '11 at 20:56
