Adaptec ACS-100 hard drive enclosure issue


I am running SUse 10. I have a friend with a bad drive, and i was going to try to get some data off it before replacing the drive and reinstalling windows for him. I put the drive in my new Adaptec ACS-100 external hard drive enclosure. THe drive is not recognized by Linux... How do i go about getting this drive to work? i have read about other people using external drives, and in theory, it should be automatically recognized like my USB stick, but no luck..

Help?

Thanks,
-myk

Check the output of "dmesg" after you plug the cable of the usb case. If it's recognized you should see something like:
Quote:
usb 1-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 2
...
Then you can manually mount it like this (assuming the hdd is ntfs formatted):
Code:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/hd
Note that the directory /mnt/hd must exist before mounting.
If the usb is not recognized then perhaps it's due to the bad hdd, since your usb stick is automatically detected.

Thanks.. I was unable to get a known working hard drive to work either.. Perhaps Linux doesnt agree with whatever chipset Adaptec is using..Can someone recommend a known working hard drive enclosure?

Thanks,
