Hi all,
I have a failed hard drive and I am attempting to recover the data from it.  I am planning on using knoppix with ddrescue.  When I hook up the bad hard drive, I get a SMART failure from the bios.  So, I disabled the SMART status in the bios, and booted to knoppix.  How ever, knoppix doesnt' see taht the device exists.  I tried mounting the drive, but knoppix doesnt' see the drive.  Can I do a find or something... maybe tweak the fstab file?
Any thoughts?
