Alright, you'll have to forgive that I don't have an abundance of knowledge with using these tools. I've tried to follow the tips provided in this thread:
And experimented with mounting using '-o loop' to no avail. It was also mentioned that I may need to determine the starting sector, but I can't seem to get that information.
My friend had a harddrive from an iMac that she thought was corrupted, and I was able to make a copy using dd to an image on my harddrive. I believe I copied only one partition, but possibly the entire drive? I actually don't remember since it was a while ago. So now I've got this image sitting on my machine that supposedly has a whole bunch of files in it I can't access.
Should mention that this is the error I get when attempting to mount:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.
