Please suggest me a Linux Live Distro (CD/DVD/USB)...


There are thousands of Linux Lives Distros... Some are "totally virtual", I mean, they do not recognize the true hard disks drives that a computer has, and they do not allow to save our things before shutdown. Other distros, such as Knoppix, can detect the real HDDs/Partitions that computer has. This is very useful to rescue/recovery/repair/fix. I want you to tell which are the live distros that can DETECT the REAL HDDs/Partitions AND read and WRITE in NTFS, FAT, ext2, ext3, ReiserFS FileSystems => this allows to copy/move/delete files in my Windows (FAT, NTFS) and Linux (ext2, ext3 ReiserFS) real partitions. Did you understand?
Thanks.

Try the "distro reviews" on this site. We don't know what your personal preferences are or what you would like so using google for articles comparing distro's may be the best way to make a decision. Which distro to choose is very subjective.

Only the last part of your post "Do you understand?" was a question. I had to guess from the post title.
