Can't mount mult dd image


root@cooper-desktop:/media/sdb1# mmls -t dos /media/sdc2/QCE3_1/QCE3_1.???DOS Partition Table
Offset Sector: 0
Units are in 512-byte sectors

Slot Start End Length Description
00: Meta 0000000000 0000000000 0000000001 Primary Table (#0)

root@cooper-desktop:/media/sdb1# sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o ro,loop,show_sys_files,offset=1048576 /media/sdc2/QCE3_1/QCE3_1.001 /media/sdb1/DATA/
Failed to read last sector (152201207): 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).
Failed to mount '/dev/loop0': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/loop0' 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?

The dd I was given was split into 2 gig files. The DD image is also RAW. Do I have to create an image to do a proper mount and does the file partition type matter?

/media/sdb1/DATA/ is not NTFS. I've also tried other formats with no success.

As this essentially was a continuation of (now marked solved) this off-site thread you should have told us your reasons for ignoring advice. You already were able to extract and export files using Autopsy and if you would have run 'affuse /media/sdc2/QCE3_1/QCE3_1.001 /mountpoint' your /mountpoint/QCE3_1.raw would have represented the whole disk. So then you could have treated partitions like you would any other loop mount: mounting with offsets or with 'kpartx' or carving out (part of) a partition with 'dd'...
