  1. [SOLVED] Re: Data recovery issues between Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows

    OK, another update...I was able to borrow a 40 Gb hard drive from a friend...one that would be OK if it got messed up. I used Ubuntu 8.04 to copy data from the messed-up drive to the spare, then...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Data recovery issues between Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows

    Well, I found a workaround, ablbeit an obscure and not very satisfying one. Although 10.10 won't work on my desktop, I have some old version laying around from my dual-booting days, and 8.04 runs...

  4. [SOLVED] Data recovery issues between Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows

    Hi,

    Quick summary: I'm trying to recover 20 Gb of data from an external hard drive that mounts under Ubuntu but not Windows. I need the data in Windows.

    The long version:

    [ubuntu] Seeking advice for new netbook

    My old netbook recently bit the dust (did a humpty-dumpty imitation) and I'm shopping for a replacement. I have read some nasty things about Win 7 starter edition, very prevalent on netbooks.

    Re: Ogg vorbis support for car stereo?

    It seems ogg support has been discontinued in several brands. I'd special order an obscure player if I could find one, but not a used one that is several years old.

    My goal is to use a flash...

    Ogg vorbis support for car stereo?

    I've found some old information on this topic, but nothing current. I'd like to put a new stereo in my car and use a flash drive as a data source. I'd prefer to use ogg rather than mp3. Does...
  8. [kubuntu] Re: Does Ubuntu not have any installation options?

    My all-SATA system works fine with Ubuntu, although I had to use 8.04 (installed while it was still beta) since none of the older releases were compatible. I suspect that was due to other hardware,...
  9. Re: What Brand of Internal Hard Drives are the best for Ubuntu?

    I agree! While storage may be cheap, fixing your system after a hard drive crash isn't pretty, even if you have good backups. I've had multiple system crashes from bad drives - I'd rather get...
  10. Re: What Brand of Internal Hard Drives are the best for Ubuntu?

    As far as I know, there shouldn't be any problem with having the two file systems side-by-side (that's what I'm doing on my new Hitachi drive).

    I can't really recommend a better option, only...
  11. Re: What Brand of Internal Hard Drives are the best for Ubuntu?

    Although any drive is compatible, you may get better (or worse) support from certain companies.

    I'd avoid Western Digital - they seem to forget that there are operating systems other than Windows....

    [all variants] Re: what *butnu de you recommend?

    I've looked at Fluxbuntu and didn't care for it; I didn't give it much time, though, so take this opinion with a grain of salt. You could try installing Xubuntu - the stated minimum is 64 Mb, and...

    [ubuntu] Trouble connecting front eSATA

    Hi folks,

    This is more a hardware question than an Ubuntu question, but I hope you'll bear with me.

    I recently got an enclosure to convert a SATA hard drive to external. I've got both USB and...

    ...you have air filters in your computer (the foam/mesh kind, not just metal grates). (I have cats!)

    Oops - turned out to be a jumper. Thought I'd checked that before. Thanks for checking, anyway!
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Will upgrading to Hardy fix my Ubuntu install?

    Yeah, I'm probably being paranoid. I've had two drives fail, and one was only a month old, the other about 8 months. I've worked on hard drives that were 10+ years old and doing fine, but these two...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Will upgrading to Hardy fix my Ubuntu install?

    You might want to do some hard drive diagnostics while you're at it...I probably have hard drive failure on the brain since I've just had it happen (destroyed my Ubuntu installation), but it's worth...

    Agreed...by the time I got to that point on my own failing hard drive, the entire operating system was toast.
