Please help with data recovery
I have been thinking about Linux for a new OS and now it seems it is time to move on it. I have a laptop with XP SP2 that won't boot. Windows begins to load, then goes to a screen that gives me the options to boot in various safe modes or last know good configuration. If I make no choice it tries to boot normally after 30 seconds. I have read that I can save my data using the Knoppix Live CD. I have downloaded and burned 'KNOPPIX_V5.1.CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso' but when I try to boot from it I get the message: media test failure check cable. The laptop is a Toshiba A105-S4134. Did I download the wrong version, or am I doing something wrong? Please help a rookie.
