in reply to Opening a block device in Windows

If you really want direct access to the raw device, like /dev/sdx under unixish/linuxish systems, you can open \\.\F: (permissions provided), potentially using CreateFile() via Win32::API. Also see this MSDN article on direct drive access, espcecially if you don't have a drive letter yet.
