Hey all, after searching around on various search engines and looking on here
I thought I'd ask if you could help me.

I am currently trying to recover data from a USB HDD hooked up to Hardy
Heron (Ubuntu) using ddrescue. My problem is that when I type the command
(sudo ddrescue /media/diskname /dev/sda1), ddrescue starts but everything it
tries to copy shows at the bottom "/media/diskname is a directory!" 

I read the man page but nothing jumped out to me at what I was wrong! If
someone could give me pointers on the weird message it would be a great
