Hi Experts,

I need help copying a compact flash . I would like to do create an exact image of a compactflash that has windows CE on it. I tried few software but was unsuccessful. I have tried to copy it from a windows 8 machine and also from an Ubuntu machine.
my compact flash has 3 partitions:
1 partition with 102MB has FAT16
1 partition with 24MB the partition seems to be a 0XDA
1 partition with 2.1MB the partition seems to b 0XD5

How can I accomplish that?
I tried macrium Reflect it didn't work , I tried HDD RAW copy tool but it says the file is locked .
I don't know what else to try to make an exact copy of this CompactFlash

Can someone help me ?
