At least for Linux, there's plenty of results explaining how to use dd to copy a "raw" device such as an SD card. One slight wrinkle for x49gp I found is that I needed to dump the partition (i.e. /dev/sde1), not the whole raw card (/dev/sde). I've no idea why, and frankly it makes answering questions like this slightly more difficult.

Quote:This is an example for a 64Mb card:
viking@fatty ~$ dd if=/dev/sde1 of=sdcard bs=512
131072+0 records in
131072+0 records out
67108864 bytes (67 MB, 64 MiB) copied, 0.494781 seconds, 136 MB/s
viking@fatty ~$

Mac OS X probably has access to the dd command as well, but Windows doesn't have it natively. I haven't tried to copy a sd card to a file on Windows recently, so others might be able to chime in on that.
