Timeshift hdd

i have an lg television with built in hdd it allows to copy to external hdd which is formatted by tv to a timeshift format.when external hdd is connected to a pc it will only show up in disk management (windows xp) as unknown partition and cannot be read.does anyone know of a way to read the recorded video and access them on the pc.

Check out partitionmagic or any linux distro.

none of those options worked

you were on the right track used ubuntu opened the file browser and used devede to extract video edited with avidemux all good.
