I have a 32 meg bin file, that is titled UTV3.7.bin, I got it by buying a cd off ebay that had the image. And now, I just registered winhex and also cleared a 40 gig drive that had 3.5 on it. I want to copy this 3.7 onto it, but I don't know how.


I have been able to see the drive in winhex over a usb2.0 enclosure, and would like to try it this way. It should work just like if I connected it to an ide cable, right?


I probably just need the right numbers for winhex clone to go from a file to a drive. Anyone know the right numbers to punch in?


Here is what the file looks like in winhex at offset 0:


Offset 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15


00000000 04 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 3F F2 FA BB 40 00 00 0E ........?òú»@...

ALRIGHT!!!!


I did it. So, for the record, here's what I had to do.


First, I had to copy the utv3.7.bin file to my HD and rename it to utv3.7.dd so winhex could see it.


I plugged the freshly cleared drive (by using my half broken utv to clear it) into a usb 2.0 enclosure. I'm running with w2k, and I launch winhex. I find that most of the drive is zeroed, but something keeps writing to block 0, with what looks like a MBR record. But everything else is zeroed.


I go to the sector mentioned, 631811 and do the clone as it says. The biggest problem I had was in figuring if the values, like 13480600 was in hex or decimal, since it has no hex a-f chars. But by reading all the message over and over I was able to conclude this was hex.


But even after I zeroed block 0, I found that on telling w2k to unmount the drive, after I loaded it up again to look, it had block 0 filled again. Finally, I just zeroed it using the in-place mode, and after a few seconds pulled the usb cable. Then when I reloaded it, block zero was nearly zero, just one number still set. So, I zeroed again, pulled the cable, and took my chances. Well, I guess even if one number in block 0 is not 0, not a problem.


It came up beautifully, so now I got my spare setup with 3.7.


Thanks for the link.

I have no way to share the file, that's why I bought it for $5 off ebay. Considering that the winhex license cost me $52, it was a bargain. Sorry.


I see that there are a couple selling on ebay now, but the price with shipping is about $14


try 5801326638


Lots easier than trying to find one online.
