It does look like the HDD itself has issues
See if Puppy Linux can access the drive;
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 BurnCDCC ISO Burning Software
There are instructions on how to boot from flash drive with puppy here; http://www.pendrivel...e-from-windows/
IMPORTANT: Adjust the speed bar to CD: 4x DVD: 1x
Puppy Linux Live CD will now be created
2. Set your boot priority in the BIOS to CD-ROM first, Hard Drive Second
(Usually shown during the "Dell" screen, or "Gateway" Screen)
CD-ROM 1st, Hard Drive 2nd
3. Recover Your Data
3a. Mount Drives
3b. Transfer Files.
For The Novice: The common path to your pictures, music, video, and documents folders for XP is: Documents and Settings >> All Users (or each individual name of each user, for Vista and above C:\Users\$USERNAME\[...]. CHECK All Names!) >> Documents >> You will now see My Music, My Pictures, and My Videos.
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 Puppy cannot mount the drive it suggests that the drive is mechanically bad, please note that HDDs can fail due to lack of free storage space on them, do you happen to know how much free storage space was available on the drive before the issue first happened.
