There is a much easier solution to your problem, i.e. use Clonezilla. Clonezilla is a free program for disk cloning and data recovery; you find a very detailed account of how to do it here. The advantage of this method is that you can circumvent the need of a third medium (USB/DVD) which seems instead to emerge from the previous comments. Since you cannot ...

The CD is an example of a read only device. It will prevent changes being made to it, but copying is still unrestricted. But what you describe is impossible. You want to give away digital information, but restrict how that information is used and limit it being transferred. The big media has been trying to do exactly that for decades (using DRM), and ...

As Bob said in a previous comment, these drives re-use the same blocks over and over again. They do not exactly wrap around as this would soon corrupt the MBR and the ...

The obvious solution is to mount the image directly in Linux and make the changes but there is a small problem. These media are partitioned a similar way as a hard drive. The solution is to mount the right partition from the image. Check that the image is indeed partitioned: $ file -k OpenELEC-RPi.arm-4.95.1.img OpenELEC-RPi.arm-4.95.1.img: x86 boot ...
