Using Black Armor External drive in Eylyssa

Postby JIbecity223 » Thu Dec 04, 2008 5:52 pm

Hey guys.

I know this is a long shot but does anyone know how I could possibly run the .exe file for the Maxtor Black Armor external hard drive in Mint? The drive is encrypted so the only way to access the files is to run an .exe program.

I can get Maxtor Manager working in wine, but it does not detect my drive.

Is there a way to make the .exe that runs the drive work in Linux?
Perhaps there is a driver i could use?

That was a long shot :)
.exe files do not work directly in Linux - ever....
Your chance is Wine or crossover or similar
Google is your friend and perhaps you find a Linux solution, but I'm afraid not
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
