Running version 1.7.17-1
Trying to $ dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/null count=10 - compact flash card in the
PC CF card reader.
Running above command displays: dd: opening `/dev/sdb': Permission denied
Searched for solutions, but could not find anything to solve. Also tried
running cygwin as administrator but still the same problem.
Do I have to mount the /dev/sdb or it is not required in later versions
