The mount command is incomplete, it has to be:

it has to be 'sudo mount /dev/sdb1 <somedir>'
of course you have to exchange <somedir> to a directory you have created
somehow. The error message tells you that /dev/sdb1 can't be found
in /etc/fstab, so mount couldn't get <somedir> from there and you have
to name it explicit.

use 'man mount'
