I have a detective friend of mine that needs to see video files on an old 160gb IDE HD for a case hes working. The DVR it was in is toast and wont work so i removed it and put it in an external drive case and connected to it via USB. The drive does not have an assigned drive letter so explorer cant see it. Disk manager can see it in four partitions but the only option i can do to it is delete it and i cant do that. I installed Knoppix 7.0 and thought the linux system could see it and do stuff with it and it could. It only saw 2 partitions and showed some system files in one and no files in the other. The 2 partitions it saw were 34MB and 2.1GB. with the system files in the 34MB partiton. There is a 150+GB missing and i need to access and copy them. Any suggestions anyone? If someone is very knowledgable ill PM my phone number as i would like to solve this soon. Thanks in advance!
