You gave me an idea so I downloaded a copy of Spinrite so I could try to 
recover the files on the machine that created them, w/o introducing USB, 

Spinrite sees Drive 0, part 1 as NTFS or OS/2 HPFS followed by an 
unpartitioned gap. And it runs the recovery program w/o errors through 
21.51% (8,603 MB) of the drive before it invokes it's "dynamic data 
recovery" thing.

So why is Spinrite able to see the drive when Winders and Linux cannot???
