permission Denied Problem
Authored by: roynel-parnelly on Mar 15, '06 08:19:29AM

Hey I'm trying to work this out but no matter how I try to type inthe command. I get "Permission Denied" as the response from the terminal. I even tried going into the netinfo manager and enabling "root user" on the machine. I should point out that I'm trying to copy the disk image to a networked drive. Does this make a difference???

any pointers on what I may be doing wrong?

you probably need to have root privileges, try putting 'sudo' before the command, ie :
sudo dd bs=512 if=/dev/rXX# of=/some_dir/foo.dmg conv=noerror,sync
