Hi - newbie here.
I have a W2000 machine that is not recognizing the hard drive. All I want to do is retrieve some of the files from it and then won't be using it anymore (my WD World Book external drive used for backup has just failed as well!!). I have downloaded the iso file and burned it to a CD with BURNCDCC. The structure on the CD looks like:

UCCD502 (drive)
antivir (folder)
boot (folder)
pmagic (folder)
ubcd (folder
autorun.inf
license.txt

When I put it in the CD drive and try to boot up the W2000 machine, all I get is the header:
ISOLINUX 3.86 2010-04-01 ETCD Copyright....etc.

I am doing something wrong, but for the life of me can't figure out what.

Any suggestions (other than using the W2000 machine for a boat anchor)?

Thanks,
Jo

Check the md5 checksum of the ISO, you downloaded, to see if the file is not corrupt:

Thanks. I downloaded from another mirror and got a good copy. The W2000 machine is booting with the CD now.
Now I just have to figure out how to recover my data from the hard disk. I did a check disk and got a read error.

Thanks again for your help.

Seems to be a major problem lately, think the mirrors need to all be checked and have them update everything that isn't an exact copy.
