Hard to understand the question since it appears english isnt your first language, but if you drag the entire HD icon to another volume the desktop folder is copied, and made visible.

One possible solution...  Copy the files to the second HD and then drag them out onto the desktop.  They will be in the desktop folder of the second HD.

Do you have a secondary operating system on the hard drive...is it external or internal?

When you booted from the CD and couldn't find the folder, did you try finding it with ResEdit and changing the visibility flag then just drag and dropping it?
