What's the exact size of the .img file you need to write?

360 KB (368,640 byte)

I used a .img acquired with kryoflux, than i deleted all the files and injected some new files into the image.
Than i converted from .img to .raw using hxc emulator

"C:\path\01.0.raw" -e81 -d0 -dd1 -w"

It could be that you confused things by not exporting with a full filename. Typically when I export from HxC to KF raw, I export with the file name "track" so I get track00.0.raw, track00.1.raw, track01.0.raw, etc, the same as the KF GUI.

Ok, it seems i found the cause of the problem.
It seems that one of the two drives i use is defective and can't write disk. I connected kryoflux to the other drive and it writes disks correctly.
Thank for your help
