capture and write boot sectors to CD or flash drive, vb code would be nice, but even an app would work

I would like to add to my utility the ability to capture and write boot sectors, mostly for flash drives or for CD/DVD.  If anyone knows of a reliable app (cheap I hope), or source code for this process - I can work with either, then it would be a great help!

I guess this might be what you are looking for. Its an opensource code.

Just be warned that you will also be capturing the partition table and overwriting it is extremely dangerous!
