Utilities / Re: Create an ISO from a CD
« Last post by Alex Taylor on Today at 03:53:45 am »
I have to second the recommendation of Tonigy. It's by far the simplest way to create an ISO from a CD.

The only thing I don't know is whether it supports DVDs (or BDs) larger than 2GB, but for CDs that's not an issue.

Storage / Re: changing USB volume letter
« Last post by Lars on June 18, 2019, 05:38:19 pm »
DFSee: "change LVM info" and then set '*' (without the '') as the drive letter. That equivalents to driveletter = None = the next available drive letter.

That is how I set up ALL my USB sticks and drives/partitions in order to avoid a driveletter conflict.

As to my USBMSD.ADD that can also mount "large floppy" formatted USB sticks: it also always sets the drive letter of the "fake" volume that it creates (for the 'large floppy' formatted USB stick) to '*' so that it will never conflict with any already used drive letters.

You can assign a drive letter without losing data by using Logical Volume Management (Simple) in the setup folder.

I think you can assign "None" and get the drive mounted with the next available letter.

I'm not sure how the assigned letter works for old Warp 4 systems, but I recall that it seems to ignore LVM and just mount the next available drive letter.

thank you Neil, I'll try.
I believed could also use DFsee as well but eventually needed some hint

DVDDAO does it for DVD, maybe for CD, too?

dvddao --aspidriver aspinkk$ -d file:d:\temp\c2.iso scsi:1,1,0

Storage / changing USB volume letter
« Last post by mauro on June 18, 2019, 02:49:01 pm »
Hi, I've made an USB stick detectable-handlable on OS2 W 4.52 (Virtualbox guest machine) with DFsee following the precious instructions received here.
Now I realized that the choosen drive letter (G) conflicts with the Shared Folder drive wich is G as well.  When plugged in, the USB volume functionality hangs after being automatically shifted to H letter, it remains locked and often make OS2 WPS not responding as well, so a letter change to a still unassigned drive letter appears to be the solution.
Can you suggest a way to just re-assign the USB volume letter avoiding the whole volume creation process in DFsee, that would wipe all data in it ?
Thank you

I have a copy of CDRecord v2.0.0 which has a few utilities for working with audio CD's though they may have been added by the porter.

BTW: With cdrecord.exe you should be able to create an .iso from a CD. For Audio CDs, I've used cdrdao.exe years ago. I don't know about its state, but I suppose cdrecord can handle this in not too old versions as well (or better).

mkisofs.exe is for creating an .iso file from file system objects like files and dirs an a disk. It can't handle CDs as source. (UDF types may be an exception.)

Thanks for the hint to KDiff. Looks good for me, I will give it  a try.

BTW: I like KDiff3 (for OS/2) much more than any Windows app.

I have been using vim on OS/2 with diffutils.  I see KDiff3 is easier to read and will use it as my GUI alternative.  Thanks for the tip.
