First - this is my first post, I hope it is to the appropriate forum. If not can someone please redirect it and me to a more appropriate location.

A recovery disk detects and shows a USB drive but will not read the contents; in Terminal the command:
reports: error (CRC).

The drive is good and the files are accessible using other software (Windows XP, Linux) only this rescue CD has the problem reading the drive.

I suspect the WinPE / WAIK process that created the recovery disk did not include some driver or other software that allows that einvironment to read a NTFS disk attached via USB.

Anyone know how to resolve this?

I created image files on a Western Digital My Book Essential 1T-byte (USB) drive ust fine. Image files are of a working Windows XP-Pro system. Image files were created using the Micrium Reflect software (free version). That software created the Windows-7 based recovery CD which boots fine, it sees the USB drive and assigns it to letter F:, it just cannot read files off that USB drive. If I ever need these image files, I would like to be able to access them from the rescue media. There is no support from Micrium for users of the Free version of their software. I do not believe my issue is with their software, but with the Windows AIK software that was used to create the bootable CD (rescue disk).

I am totally new to this WinPE / WAIK world and have only a cursory understanding of it. If any additional information is necessary to help diagnose this issue, please ask.

Thanks in advance,
