That site explains how to connect the drive internally or externally. I doubt very much that Windows can read the drive.

You can either try putting cgywin on the windows machine & read it from there or try a Live CD such as backtrack 3, which is Linux based. If it can read it, you can write the contents to the windows partition, which will probably be marked as sd1b or something similar. Run df to check.

Does it appear in disk management? If not, try my second suggestion of booting with a Live CD, such as backtrack 3.

There is a good chance the BT3 will see the drive. Let me know.

Did you run df in BT3? Also run dmecg | more

If they don't see it, you probably need an HP-unix box.

That command is a known Unix & Linux command & it should work in a BT3 terminal. I've used it. Are you booting with the BT3 disc?
