Use Puppy Linux Live CD to Recover Your Data:
CD Burner (CDRW) Drive,
Extra Storage Device (USB Flash Drive, External Hard Drive)
1. Save these files to your Desktop/Burn Your Live CD:
- Download Latest Puppy Linux ISO (i.e.: lupu-520.iso)
Download BurnCDCC ISO Burning Software
- Open BurnCDCC with Windows Explorer
- Extract All files to a location you can remember
- Double Click BurnCDCC
- Click Browse and navigate to the Puppy Linux ISO file you just downloaded
- Open/Double Click that file
IMPORTANT: Adjust the speed bar to CD: 4x DVD: 1x
- Click Start
- Your CD Burner Tray will open automatically
- Insert a blank CD and close the tray
- Click OK
2. Set your boot priority in the BIOS to CD-ROM first, Hard Drive Second
- Start the computer/press the power button
- Immediately start tapping the appropriate key to enter the BIOS, aka "Setup"
(Usually shown during the "Dell" screen, or "Gateway" Screen)
- Once in the BIOS, under Advanced BIOS Options change boot priority to:
CD-ROM 1st, Hard Drive 2nd
- Open your ROM drive and insert the disk
- Press F10 to save and exit
- Agree with "Y" to continue
- Your computer will restart and boot from the Puppy Linux Live CD
3. Recover Your Data
- Once Puppy Linux has loaded, it is actually running in your computer's Memory (RAM). You will see a fully functioning Graphical User Interface similar to what you normally call "your computer". Internet access may or may not be available depending on your machine, so it is recommended you print these instructions before beginning. Also, double clicking is not needed in Puppy. To expand, or open folders/icons, just click once. Puppy is very light on resources, so you will quickly notice it is much speedier than you are used to. This is normal. Ready? Let's get started.
3a. Mount Drives
- Click the Mount Icon located at the top left of your desktop.
- A Window will open. By default, the "drive" tab will be forward/highlighted. Click on Mount for your hard drive.
- Assuming you only have one hard drive and/or partition, there may be only one selection to mount.
- USB Flash Drives usually automatically mount upon boot, but click the "usbdrv" tab and make sure it is mounted.
- If using an external hard drive for the data recovery, do this under the "drive" tab. Mount it now.
- At the bottom left of your desktop a list of all hard drives/partitions, USB Drives, and Optical Drives are listed with a familiar looking hard drive icon.
- Open your old hard drive i.e. sda1
- Next, open your USB Flash Drive or External Drive. i.e. sdc or sdb1
- If you open the wrong drive, simply X out at the top right corner of the window that opens. (Just like in Windows)
- From your old hard drive, drag and drop whatever files/folders you wish to transfer to your USB Drive's Window.
Remember to only click once! No double clicking! Once you drag and drop your first folder, you will notice a small menu will appear giving you the option to move or copy. Choose COPY each time you drag and drop.
YOU ARE DONE!!! Simply click Menu >> Mouse Over Shutdown >> Reboot/Turn Off Computer. Be sure to plug your USB Drive into another working windows machine to verify all data is there and transferred without corruption. Congratulations!
If you're doing this to recovery from a virus or malware infection, (or even if you're not), DO NOT copy executable files (.exe, .scr. etc...) if any of these files are infected you could be copying the corruption over to any new device/computer. just copy documents, pictures, music, or videos.

Next, open your USB Flash Drive or External Drive. i.e. sdc or sdb1
The symbol for the flash drive actually looks like a flash drive
Also check that you are not copying a greater file quantity than the flash drive capacity
Try it with just a few jpegs first

Those you have copied or drag and drop will still be on the hard drive.
Depending on what is now on the flash pen, and if you do not mind losing those, although they may indeed never be recoverable, format the flash drive FAT32 on the laptop
Open the hard drive in puppy
drag the window to the corner of the desktop
Open the flash drive drag across
DRAG and drop
One image not a video
and then try the flash pen.
On that link that my colleague sent you which Puppy did you download as the link on the post does not go to 5.20 Lupo
If you downloaded Slacko please try this one
NOTE it may I think be best to simply remake yourself another Puppy, using the link I have sent.

Do you have another computer that has a windows operating system or is the laptop you mention Apple.
Has the PNY been used on an apple computer.

If it is and you then know the flash pen works I would try again with the other puppy I sent you
