Hard Drive removed - format not recognized - how to read the data?
My Streamium MCI500H stopped working for some reason. I opened up the unit to see if the hard drive is working and it seems to be working fine (I'm an electrical & computer engineer so I know what I'm doing ;-) ). On the other hand, once I try to read the contents of the hard drive (connected thru a IDE to USB external drive enclosure), it does not recognize the format directly in Windows. I read something on one of your forums that using Linux to read this disk works. Is this true? Or do you have any software that I can install on my Windows machine to read the data from the disk? I'm not interested in a repair or a replacement, all I want to do, is to copy my music from the drive.
