    I tried gparted and after scanning for a few minutes I received the following response:

    Libparted bug found! (as superuser)
    Input/Output error during read on /dev/sda


    Is there any chance that my method of attaching the drive is affecting the way it is read? It is currently attached via USB adapter and set to "master". Note that I believe the USB adapter does work fine as I attached another hard drive with it and it was immediately recognized on multiple computers.

    If its just a super block errors - Then e2fsck should help you. But first few question :

    Code:
    If I run Knoppix Adriane, it can see the drive in file manager but it will not mount and if I run fdisk -l, it does nothing.
    Can you share the screenshot of "drive in file manager" ? When you try to mount that drive, whats the exact error message you get in "/var/log/messages" and on your screen. ? Can you post them here?
    Also did the partition info shows up with "sudo blkid" command ? If so please post its output.

    Code:
    It is the original hard drive that was in equipped in my Dell desktop. (I'm assuming it is eaither FAT32 or NTFS. I
    So the harddrive is from windows world ?

    If so, then try installing 'ntfs-3g' package on Knoppix Adriane - Then try to mount it.

    Okay. I loaded up Knoppixx Adriane and here are the pics of what I see when I go into File Manager.

    Also, I tried the "sudo blkid" command, and this is what I got:

    The hard drive is from a PC loaded with Windows XP. I'll be honest, I'm not sure how to mount the 'ntsf-3g' package. I'll have to read up on that first.

    blkid didn't show the /sda partition . Either the disk was not attached or It was unable to detect . Did you find any messages under /var/log/messages when you attached or detach the disk ? (I assume you are using this as secondary hdd)

    Yes,give it a try with ntfs-3g package

    Make sure you mount them as "Read-only"

    I did not see any messages. I believe I was looking in the right place. I have the hard drive mounted via USB adapter and I am booting from a CD so effectively it is a secondary hard drive. I'll try out the ntfs-3g package and see what I get.
