it is my internal hard disk suddenly this message appeared at boot
(A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart )

I have connected it as external hd to another laptop . I can see the partitions but it asks me

to format it and when i want to make chkdsk it says not supported for RAW .

I have connected my hard to Puppy Linux it has read my hard drive partitions but displayed error message .

Can you copy from the drive to a good drive?

Since the drive is formatted in NTFS, if you have access to a Windows system (XP or higher), you should probably try to access the drive in Windows and then run a scandisk/chkdsk on it.

Maybe you need to give testdisk a try...

Since you can get read only access copy as much stuff as you can while within Puppy. I gather you aren't backed up.

Make sure you have media as large as what the space is taken up on the offending drive to copy to, suggest a usb2 hard drive for fastest transfer or through a fast ethernet connection to a place on your LAN (if available).

Good Luck!

Hi sermed,

You can also try ntfsfix command at the terminal:
Code:
~# ntfsfix -help
ntfsfix v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)

Usage: ntfsfix [options] device
    Attempt to fix an NTFS partition.

    -h, --help             Display this help
    -V, --version          Display version information

For example: ntfsfix /dev/sda6


This won't fix all errors in a partition necessarily, but it is worth a try.

Hope this helps,
Monsie

How did you get to the first picture you put up?

It is clearly seeing things on the drive. Can you drag and drop things from that drive to a working drive?
