file rescue using external harddrive on a laptop
My sister's laptop recently went down from the system registry getting corrupted. And of course XP's repair tool failed me, so i popped in a knoppix CD from the linux for dummies book. Now i can get to her files on the laptop. Trouble is, i have nowhere to put them. Her CD burner is shot.
I have a Seagate 120GB external harddrive plugged into the laptop, but knoppix doesn't seem to be registering it.
Has anyone else had this problem or have any advice? I'd really appreciate anything you guys can offer me. thanks
