.dd File Type Questions
Hello everyone, I have been doing research for a while and really haven't found exactly what I need so I am asking here hoping that you can help! I hope this is the right section to post in as it seems the most fitting, I am a linux newbie. So, I have a .dd file that I need to open and see the files inside. I have been researching the mount function for the last hour and I simply cannot get it to work. Basically what I am asking is how can I get to see the files in the .dd file? I would like you to be specific in your answer because clearly general answers are not working. Also, if there is a better way than the mount method, I am open to suggestions I just need to get this stupid thing open.
Thank you in advance!
Response to Code
Ok, so I did what you said and had a couple of problems with the code. For some reason:
sudo fdisk -l /dev/loop1
Disk /dev/loop1: 536 MB, 536870912 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 65 cylinders, total 1048576 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000
Disk /dev/loop1 doesn't contain a valid partition table
sudo dmsetup status
No devices found
So yeah, something is going wrong here, but I'm not sure what. The problem may be that this is a weird .dd file, as it is of a SheevaPlug, not exactly a standard computer. Do you have any more suggestions?
