I have a partitioned HDD with Linux and Windows on it. I cannot access Windows anymore (system 32 etc ...) and I want to get back some data I have on it before removing it. However I cannot access it. I am currently on a liveUSB linux and I got the following resultfrom fdisk -l

My data are on /dev/mmcblk0p3 (remark : I don't know why my HDD is a mmcblk I thought it would appear as a /dev/sda or something like that).
The command mount -t ntfs /dev/mmcblk0p3 /media/tmp returns :
NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/mmcblk0': Invalid argument The device '/dev/mmcblk0' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around? root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# mount -t ntfs /dev/mmcblk0p3 /media/tmp/ Failed to read last sector (191385007): Invalid argument HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS), or the NTFS boot sector is corrupt (NTFS size is not valid).

I tried ntfs,vfat and ntfs-3g types with the same result. Note that I have access to the Linux 23.3G partition
