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."

Attached is version 1.15 for Linux. It is double wrapped I'm afraid in order to get around this forum's insistence upon using recognised file types.
Code:
unzip humaxrw-1.15.zip
tar xvzf humaxrw-1.15.tgz
If you let me know the file type extension, I will add it to the list accepted by the forum.

This is what I got when completing the first part 'sudo blkid' with the HDD connected:
Code:
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.

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

sudo lsblk produced:

Code:
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

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

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:
Code:
sudo ./humaxrw /dev/sdc -l -r
