Hi I'm very new to Linux and am trying to install TV Guide/Timer to a new Hard Drive for my Pioneer Recorder.According to online instructions i'm supposed to input "mount /media/hda1 -o remount,rw" when i do so i get "media not found message"..BTW I am using Knoppix V 7 ,these instructions were for V 3.6 ,if that has any bearing.....any help would be greatly appreciated.thanks
Hi thank you very much for replying.As I said I'm very new to Knoppix/Linux and was trying to follow some instructions on upgrading a Pioneer DVD/HDD Recorder using Linux to install TV Guide Timer onto the new HDD.After checking things after I see that Knoppix has the Windows HDD as sda1 not hda1 as in the instructions,and the new HDD that i'm trying to install the ISO file to as sdb5 not hdb.The new HDD has been formatted to FAT32 ,but has had the partition removed.I will try again using sda1 instead of hda1.Thanks again for your help.If you don't mind I'll retype the instructions i'm using,purpose being to copy a ISO file from Windows Drive to new HDD on a special partition created by Linux
sorry i can't give the exact path of pioneer4.iso because its on my other computer at home.but it is in a folder i created in windows xp titled Firmware,that's what the instructions tell us to do.download the iso and extract it into a folder created in XP titled Firmware.
Thanks.If I can get the iso onto my new HDD in the right position then i owe you some beers!
sorry if i'm not explaining myself clearly here.i have two hard drives,one with windows xp and the pioneer4.iso which is in a folder titled Firmware inside XP OS.the other hard drive is blank,no partitions.purpose is to install pioneer4.iso on blank hard drive starting at sector 4 ,leaving the boot sectors open for an ID Write from a data cd.
