View Files from mirrored RAID outside the device

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – The Product I have is a Western Digital My Book The device has stopped working but there is nothing wrong with either of the two mirrored drives. I would like to take out the two mirrored hard drives, and recover the data if at all possible. How would I go about this on ubuntu 11.10? Both of the drives are recognized but I can not see the data anywhere. The relevant software I have on the system are: Disk Utility and a terminal application called mdadm. I am trying to be cautious and not accidentally wipe the data. Any help will be much appreciated. (HowTos)
