Knoppix does not recognize sata drive on usb adapter
Posted on 2012-03-20
I have 2 drives from a Buffalo LinkStation Pro Duo. The housing failed and I am trying to get the data from the drives.
The drives were configured as RAID 1 and Buffalo advises that they are in xfs file system and I should be able to see them in Linux.
I have created a boot disk with Knoppix 6.7.1 which boots into Knoppix fine. I then connect a USB powered drive adapter to one of the drives from the Buffalo unit and connect that to the PC.
I can see the local hard drive and browse successfully, but when I select the option for "my computer" I do not see the external drive.
I see an icon for the local drive (160G), I see an icon for file system, which displays the contents of the local drive. I can also see the WD Passport USB drive that I want to transfer the data to. I see four "documents" that are all labeled RAID -1 Array... that do not display anything.
Where do I go from here, or what am I doing wrong?
Thank you for any suggestions.
