This forum is for Website questions and suggestions. This question doesn't even relate to asking something about this site. Please try to post your questions in the most proper forums.

A: is for the Windows world.. Linux don't know what the heck A: is. Your looking for the dd command or maybe even just a cp command.

man dd
man cp
