I received an old hard drive from which I need to read the data. I connect it using an AT-Interface to USB connector. (I tried two different ones with the same results). I guess it is about 210-211 MB and from the early nineties.
It is recognized as a hard drive.
Windows 8.1 suggests that I "initialize" it, but I guess then all data would be lost.
In Ubuntu it shows up as /dev/sdd but without partitions.
hardinfo I can see a storage device called "94354-230"
If I do
sudo parted --list it lists the other disks in the computer and then
Error: /dev/sdd: unrecognized disk label
If I try
sudo gpart sdd the result is:
**** Fatal error: cannot get sector size on dev(sdd).
How can I read the data from this disk? What software or hardware or command line do I need to do it?
More text from the hard drive case is:
