Hey EMC guy,
I assume you are running this in the "live CD" mode. Linux (Ubuntu) can only read FAT32 windows partitions and can not access NTFS formatted windows drives. Most Win XP drives are formatted in NTFS. So, if you hard drive is formatted as NTFS, when you run Ubuntu off the Live CD, you will be unable to mount or see the hard drive. When you install Ubunutu, you will need to create a linux partition to install into and some people create a small FAT32 partition in order to allow file sharing/access between Ubuntu and Windows.
I don't know off the top of my head for the HP printer linux drivers, I can look more once I am done at the hospital.
Love the open office, etc.
But can't get to my harddrive. It recognizes my USB jump drives, and can read from my cd rom and DVD drives. It doesnt recognize My HP printer which is run over USB, and has a number of slots for USB sticks and other removable media.
Do I have to get a linux driver for the disk? or am I not looking in the right place?
Or is this not a feature of LIve ubuntu?
My hard drive info
