WSL 2 WIN11 pass through USB SD Card reader

My goal: pass through a USB connected SD Card into WSL so that I can image the SD Card using dd

My set up:

  • Win11 (10.0.22000 Build 22000))
  • WSL2
  • OS installed Ubuntu
  • Linux Kernel: 5.10.102.1-microsoft-standard-WSL2 #1 SMP

I have tried to use USBIPD to pass through the USB device which has worked as the lsusb shows:

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 067b:2731 Prolific Technology, Inc. USB SD Card Reader

Yet, I cannot find where it has mounted the drive?

Have I missed a step?

I have used drvfs to mount it in windows and can access by mounting in Linux which does work but this is just a mounted folder, I need the disk to be mounted for dd to work its magic...

    Hello ThomasBelcher,
