I'm trying to move some .jpg & .mp3 files from a USB hard drive that is formatted under MAC OSX (0xaf) to a Windows Vista Laptop.

I am using a Knoppix 6.2 live cd. Knoppix sees the laptop hard drive as

System /media/sda2
Vista /media/sda3
Recovery /media/sda1

and the USB hard drive as


I can see files on the laptop's hard drive but when I try to access the USB drive I get 'Permission Denied'

Can the files on this drive be accessed?

Thanks for any help or suggestions

If the drive is formatted as NTFS then you need to get an NTFS plugin so that you can read these drives. There are some programs that you can download to read/write NTFS. By default the system will not allow you to do anything to a hard drive that is formatted as NTFS, only read.
