my windows computer crashed and a friend suggested ubuntu to save my files, i d/l a live cd and tried to open my drive, I got this error
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
I attempted to mount the drive manually using some online tutorials but it did not work. Please let me know how i can mount this drive and save some of my files. Windows will not get past the BSOD. Thanks!
tried clicking again and got this error:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error
Failed to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

You can ignore the RAID/FakeRaid stuff... when you boot windows..does it get anywhere? no safe mode or anything?
SystemREscue CD might be a better choice...it's geared more towards "rescuing a system" than ubuntu's live cd...
