    Making Image of HD for HD Upgrade


    My laptop had a 10 Gb HD and I just got a new 100 Gb one. I also got a USB to SATA cable and power supply thinking I could use this along with AIR to copy the disk.

    I cqan feel that the new HD is powered up and running and the USB adapter is lit up but I cannot find the drive. I know if I plug in a flash drive I can see it in /MEDIA.

    Does anyone know if I can get this to work ar suggest another way of doing this?

    thanks

    Which Linux distro do you have? Execute fdisk -l command in Terminal/Konsole and check if it lists partitions of new HD.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I am running Fedora 7

    I get:

    [root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/sda: 30.0 GB, 30005821440 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3648 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 14 3648 29198137+ 8e Linux LVM


    Also, if I do lsUSB with the adapter and drive plugged in I get:

    I did a search on USB device ID 152d:2338 and got some mention of needing driver zd1211b.ko. These posts were sort of old I a saw that someone said it had been put into the kernel
