We have read a lot of threads in forums like "The Windows tells me the disk in drive is not formatted, so I cannot access the disk to open files, what should I do?" The questioner may encounter one of the following situations:
*Invalid media type reading drive
*Abort, Retry, Fail?
*File system is displayed as 'RAW'
*File names contain 'weird' characters
*sector not found
Any of the above information indicates there is wrong parameter in sector, so they are denied to access the RAW disk.
The term RAW disk refers to the accessing of the data on a hard disk drive or other storage media directly at the individual byte level instead of through its file system as usually. A file system is the hierarchy of directories (also referred to as the directory tree) and files that is used to organize information on a computer. The use of file systems offers some important advantages for computers as compared with just using the HDD as a RAW disk. In particular, it provides a very intuitive means for organizing and finding files. Also, it provides a convenient means of hiding metadata that is of little interest to most users and would also be incomprehensible to most of them.
