Windows fails load windows, cant access HDD from Linux

Ive been having some windows issues as of late and last night my PC just decided to no longer boot to windows. When I try and boot into safe mode (with and without networking) when it gets to loading CLASSPNP.SYS it says "Please Wait..." but sits and does nothing, it will eventually load the repair program and do a scan looking to see what the problem with the computer is. It doesnt ever find anything. I try and boot to windows normally and it just sits and the Starting WIndows screen for ever. The Windows Logo is pulsing so i know it hasnt froze up. When I try and Launch Startup repair it doesnt ever find anything wrong. So at this point Ive given up on this install of windows and want to get my files off. So I throw in a copy of Knoppix and boot the live DVD. It boots without fail. Only when I try and access my HDD that has windows installed (I have two HDDs in my computer, one for windows and programs, the other mainly for media storage) it wont let me access it. Ive tried follow tuts online to allow me to access the drive but nothing work. Is there anything I can do at this point to allow me to get my data off the drive, or repair it to boot? If I have to reinstall I can, but would rather not have to till I get my data off the drive.

See this tutorial by theog on sevenforums.com for a neat trick to use to allow you to Copy & Paste from the Recovery Console to save files and folders.

Should be able to save your data that way.
