The problem I'm wondering about (the image from dd is almost done) is 
the filesystem...the mount example is trying ext3, when I tried mounting 
the drive physically fdisk couldn't determine the existence of a 
partition table, and no filesystem.

Any way to extract if there was a filesystem and it's just damaged?
