A program to extract files from an image file - like FLASHDRV.EXE?

Hello,

What I want to do is extract the files from the directory of my Flash image file.
Is it possible to extract the files from a Flash memory image? Does anyone have a program, which can do the reverse process of what FLASHDRV.EXE does?

Thanks in advance.

Under Linux, this is not so easy as it seems. You can follow the following article:

Maybe it is much easier to just boot your card and connect the to a nfs-server and extract the files this way.

Hm, ok.
Could you please give me some more details about how I can connect to an ntfs server and get the directory from the card? I have tried to connect to a Windows PC via the COM port, but did not succeed :(

Connecting to nfs (not ntfs) server is described in our Linux Guide. What kind of product do you use?

Hello again,

Sorry, I was out of town.
I have an image file, but I can not be sure what files exactly there are on it. I want to extract them and check them.
I know that this image file was created using Flashdrv.exe - it combines all files which you put in a specified directory in the appropriate format. However, now I want to do the opposite of what Flashdrv.exe does. I am sure that what Flashdrv.exe is doing can be reversed, meaning that the files can be extracted from the image.
I know that Flashdrv.exe does not just put the files linearly in the flash, and I am looking for a way to retrieve the files from the image.

Apart from the fact, that this forum is for taskit ARM products and flashdrv.exe is used for the 386/DOS products, we have no tool to reverse the process. The only way to extract the files is by flashing the image onto the device and then copy the files back to the PC. Please consult the manual of the product you use.
