 Post subject: Read a USB drive to restore HDD after booting from UBCD

I have the image of the a drive image recovery application and I successfully added this to the User Defined Tools menu and can invoke the app.
The problem however is that once I load this app it doesn't see the USB DVD+RW/CD+RW drive that contains the files of the HDD image needed to restore the hard drive.
Can someone suggest a method of loading the USB drive before I can invoke this app? Or is there some other way I can accomplish this?

The line I customized is:
if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then memdisk /images/pdi.img
Also with the Basic Linux option I am able to browse the USB drive.

Thanks very much for any help.
AJ

Is Paragon Drive Image Recovery a dos app?

If so, you can try copying the files to a subdirectory under "dosapps". Then boot using FreeDOS and run from the app directory from "dosapps".

Of course, this is assuming FreeDOS is able to recognize and mount your USB drive.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes the application is a DOS app. I finally had to remove the USB drive from it's casing and connect it as a Slave. I was then able to use the drive after loading the app just like you suggested.
thnx
