I'd like to know if it's posible to mount a floppy in a mode such that I'l can obtain a binary image of the floppy. This is because we must read datas from a floppy but the filesystem ( VAX VMS) do not seems to be supported ?

cant you just do a dd of /dev/fdXXXXyyyy ?

Doesnt VAX VMS also use hard sectored floppies? If that is the case, you also need special hardware.

does dd make a binary copy ?

Response to your question : No, because we can make a binary copy of them under DOS

dd is a raw copy tool, other chances could be dump (cpio?)
