comment What happened to my ext3 partition
thanks, that worked. Appreciate it. So what I was trying to do is basically write data to filesystem at various offsets. I think I should not have written directly to the device file. Can you please check a question I have posted here at Stackoverflow. stackoverflow.com/questions/9594073/…

comment How to write a file at various offsets to a filesystem partition with dd command
I see. If I write directly to the device file at an offset, I basically destroy the filesystem on the partition. I tried that already. So how do I write data to a file at a particular offset in the file system? See my original requirement above.

Thanks for the great answer. Appreciate it. I read the LWM article and that inspired me ask few more questions, so I added them to my question above.
