Customer brought a Maxtor IDE hard drive believed to be bad.  I have a test machine which has a working diskk0 with XP and I use this machine to extract data from bad drives.  Device manager and disk management do not see the disk.  The bois sees the drive and I have tried switching from IDE2 slave and IDE 2 master with and without other drives on the channel..  The bois always sees the drive but the system does not.   Booted under knoppix Linux system but when I try to mount the disk it fails.  Error message 'could not determine the file system type and none was selected.  Any ideas?
