As an alternative you could skip the extract part and just use
sudo mount -oloop,offset=32256 filename.img /mnt
That way you don't need (nearly) double the space of the image on your
hard disk. OTOH, maybe there really is no partition table and the whole
disk was used or the disk layout is even more obscure. Therefore you
could try any offset value in multiples of 512.
