Windows 7: Raw Drive access from a Python program

23 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Raw Drive access from a Python program

I am in the process of recovering files off a Creative Nomad Zen MP3 Player and have a Python program to do this.

The above program however is designed to run under Linux.

The hard drive of which I have put into USB drive is formatted in a proprietory way, by Creative, thus windows wants to "initialize" it before assigning a drive letter. Obviously this would remove, at least some of the content

What is the convention for accessing the raw drive without intializing and assigning a drive letter in Windows 7?

The drive name is FUJITSU MHT2030AT USB Device. Can I reference the drive by name of is there some other way to reference the drive in the Python program, without referencing a drive letter? For example in Linux the drive is accessed as /dev/hda.

What is the windows 7 equivalent?
