I finally got my PIC reading blocks on a SD memory chip. But it looks like I have 3 extra bytes that are required to be read to get the SD memory to be read on every other read.

Is anyone aware of a card reader / editor that can read the individual raw sectors of data?

In Linux, an SD card shows up as a standard block device. You can use a utility like hexedit or octeta to view individual sector data.

Pick a distribution of your choice and make a live cd/usb. Pretty much any distro will do.

Well I do not have linux.

I did find some code in C for windows that at this point seems to have gotten me what I need.

I told you how to get it. Its free. Download it. Burn it to a CD. Boot your computer. Done.

Sorry to be pushy, but you really don't know what you're missing. There's a whole 'nother world out there!
