I try to do a little bit of everything. For work I do web programming. For fun I dabble in game programming and am still looking for a good opensource project to put some effort into

Well, the drive is recognizable by the computer. I can mount it, but it immediately gets set to read-only and causes a kernel panic. I've tried both dd-ing and using ddrescue, but those only work for a few minutes before the drive stops being readable

well.... the bad news is that this is NOT a theoretical question. The "good" news is that the data in question is not of critical importance. It's important, but not like company-breakingly important. The truth is, a friend brought me a portable drive that didnt seem to be working with windows anymore, and asked me to check it for viruses. Unfortunately it appears to not work anymore because I'm guessing its reached the end of its lifespan. It seemed like googling for a good solution would be less trustworthy than the advice / experience from the serverfault community
