RAWRITE error help

While trying to make a boot disk of bare.i using RAWRITE i get this error and the disk isn't made. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

Number of sectors per track for this disk is 18
Writing image to drive A:. Press ^C to abort.
Attempt to DMA across 64K boundary

I think this error is because the disk im using is formatted as FAT is that correct. If so what should i do coz all my disk are preformatted as fat.

Regards - OSI-laya

What version of windows are you running this on? My guess is you're using the wrong version of rawrite for the version of windows you have... I got this error when i used rawrite in XP, try rawritexp.exe for Windows XP...
