Hello Paul,

I often get drives that will show up as a device (ie, /dev/sdc)
including the model number of the drive, but because linux tries to
load the partition table of the drive when it detects it, it results in
a mess and subsequently you cannot access it via ddrescue.

Does anyone know of a way to tell linux not to load the partition
table, or treat the drive as a raw binary device

I do not have an answer to your question, but I think that if a device (e.g., /dev/sdc) can't be accessed because of the data it contains, then this is a bug in linux.

Best regards,
