    So do you get any error message when you try to run it? Have you tried

    /tmp/humaxrw 1: -l

    Yes, tried with progressive number 1,2,3 etc as advised previously. Error message reads 'No such file or directory'

    Looking at permissions again if relevant - tmp file permissions - owner root and sharing protocol requires administrator to alter. Not sure
    if this possible in live USB version of OS?

    I don't know, but I suspect that you might need to use /dev/sda or similar instead of 1: etc.

    The help is somewhat unhelpful as to what "HUMAXDISK" actually should be.

    Ok I have remembered the Linux version is different; This is copied from a post by user Bobblecat on MyHumax.org

    "I extracted humaxrw into my /Home folder and worked with the executable 'humaxrw' from there.

    In Ubuntu Linux a sata drive is defined in this form, /dev/sdX where X is the drive specified as X= a, b, c, d etc [Letters are used rather than numbers]
    The old form /dev/hdX [used in the readme] changed to /dev/sdX when sata drives came along.

    I ran 'sudo blkid' in the terminal with the Humax drive connected and identified it as /dev/sdd.

    Not surprising as I already have three drives connected and they show up as /dev/sda, /dev/sdb, and /dev/sdc.

    I had to use sudo with the commands to make them work. [sudo is superuser - a bit like admin in windows]

    So the list command looked like this:

    sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdd -l

    That worked. I got a list of the recordings on the Humax disk.
    You will need to check the drive letter for the Humax disk on your equipment, it might not be /dev/sdd.
    I was able to go on to successfully back up from the Humax drive to my /Home folder.

    To achieve this I entered the following in the terminal:

    sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdd -b

    The backup only took a few minutes. Really pleasing as I was dreading that it might take hours. The backed up files appeared in my /Home directory.
    The .ts files will run with no problem through VLC media player on my PC."

    If you let me know the file type extension, I will add it to the list accepted by the forum.

    File type is tgz (Tar archive compressed with Gnu Zip).

    This is what I got when completing the first part 'sudo blkid' with the HDD connected:
    mint@mint ~ $ sudo blkid
    /dev/loop0: TYPE="squashfs"
    /dev/sda1: LABEL="RECOVERY" UUID="06ECC92AECC914B9" TYPE="ntfs"
    /dev/sda2: UUID="1EF8CA81F8CA56A5" TYPE="ntfs"
    /dev/sda3: LABEL="BACKUP" UUID="9630E30930E2EEE5" TYPE="ntfs"
    /dev/sdb1: LABEL="MULTIBOOT" UUID="97CE-B44B" TYPE="vfat"
    I assume these are all my windows machine and live linux (sdb1) usb. So no sign of HDD so far.

    I find lsblk more useful.

    humaxrw /dev/sdc -l

    sudo humaxrw /dev/sdc -l - command not found

    sudo lsblk produced:

    mint@mint ~ $ sudo lsblk
    sda  8:0  0 149.1G  0 disk
    |-sda1  8:1  0  7G  0 part
    |-sda2  8:2  0  112G  0 part /media/mint/1EF8CA81F8CA56A5
    `-sda3  8:3  0  30G  0 part /media/mint/BACKUP
    sdb  8:16  1  3.8G  0 disk
    `-sdb1  8:17  1  3.7G  0 part /cdrom
    sdc  8:32  0 298.1G  0 disk
    loop0  7:0  0  1.3G  1 loop /rofs

    sdc looks like the HDD

    sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdc -l
    assuming humaxrw is in the current directory

    sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdc -l - command not found

    How can I check humaxrw is in the current directory?

    Presumably you know where you put it???
    "ls -l" to see what's there. But I'd imagine you'd know this?

    I re-extracted humaxrw 1.5 to home file.

    re-entered command and it gave:

    mint@mint ~ $ sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdc -l
    Partition 2: Input/output error
  20. xyz321

    xyz321 Well-Known Member

    I/O errors indicate a problem reading from the disk. Partition 2 is only used for storing JPEGs so it may not be a major problem providing there are no I/O errors elsewhere. You should still be able to use recovery mode, try:
    sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdc -l -r
