Ah, OK. I did not follow before.
I think Windows is a really poor choice for this. Worse, it might have
tried to mount the filesystem R/W and conceivably damaged it further.
Rufus I use for writing Windows ISOs to USB, but nothing else. I don't
think it's a suitable tool for this at all.
Active Disk Image, and Macrium Reflect programs
Never heard of them, I'm afraid. I used to have Windows tools for this
stuff, 2 decades ago before I stopped using it unless someone was
paying me to, but they won't run on Win10.
to copy it an
image file and then back to the CF. They are supposed to create exact
images of the drives but I think they do not. Of course it could be
something with my CF to USB adapter.
It could be-- but it could also be that they're trying to copy a
mounted FS or something.
As far as errors, as stated in my OP, "Since the
voicemail card is
running headless, I can't see the error messages." The only way I know
of a successful boot, is one LED turns green and then I can call in to
the VoiceMail card.
Couldn't you try to boot the image in a VM?
I am going to try a Linux machine and DD next.
Much better plan.
If there are any errors on the drive, I would recommend GNU
``ddrescue``. Do not confuse this with the older (but still
maintained) dd_rescue which is the product that inspired the GNU one;
the newer one is more capable.
It images but skips and continues on error, whereas ``dd`` will simply fail.
