Problems copying Ghost Files

Working with a Western Digital World book drive with a dead housing.
Both drives (mirrored) spin up fine. 500G each, formatted NTFS.

 The
drives contain image files created by Norton Ghost that I am trying to
copy and paste to a Western Digital 1.5T My Passport USB drive.

 Using
a PC booted with a knoppix disk I am able to see the folders via a usb
connector. I can select copy and paste and see the progress bar
gradually move to completion which take about 12 plus hours.

 When done, I get error messages as follows:

 <Ghost file name> "Can't copy special file"
 <Ghost file name> "Error Opening File: Permission denial
 Error starting file <path and Ghost file name": input/output error

 Is there a way to copy Ghost files in this scenario?

 Suggestions greatly appreciated.

Re: Problems copying Ghost Files

Can you remove the drives from the housing and connect directly to the motherboard?

Is this the same problem as this thread?
