you can't access winDOS, only the files/file system.

You have to mount the harddrive first, then you have access to it.

sorry, you didn't mention it and forgot the version too but unless you run a very old one which I don't have:

there's an icon in the top left named drives. click it ONCE!
What you will see is a list of the drives on your PC and everything hd_ is a drive. Behind it is a small box which says mount. If you click it it's mounted.

Same for your CD or DVD drive which you will find with its name.

Hope that helps.

Juergen
