I installed tuxera.. a friend suggested i make a bootable ubuntu flash disk to bypass the ntfs issues. But, even if I do that, I'm sitll not sure what command to use... Also, it looks like i should use rdisk rather than disk...
I can download the trial of paragon if you think it will help...
I believe if you use the Paragon software you can mount the disks on the desktop and copy them with any mac cloning software or even Disk Utility, but I have not tried that personally. It would be a lot easier if you had Parallels or VMWare fusion installed. I assume you don't have access to any PCs?
Paragon did the trick! PCs would not see the data structure -- IT couldn't do anything with it, nor MicroCenter. But by using the Mac, Paragon seemed to magically fix the file structure. I was able to copy all the data I wanted except for 3 or 4 glitchy files.
Tuxera eventually gave me a glimpse of the disk, but slooooooowwwwwwwww and incomplete.
