I created an image file using ddrescue from my failed SSD and it was able to recover all the files without errors. But now the problem is I cannot mount there img it says. Failed to setup loop devices: no such device or address. I followed the ddrescue guide from technibble not sure what I did wrong.
Using mount -o loop,ro .img mountpoint

Can someone help?

Is this Mac or Linux? (The PC you are trying to mount the image on)

Did you image the entire drive or just a single partition? If it was the entire drive, do you know what the partition table was like?

alright, let's make sure everything is as it should be...
at the linux command line, type
fdisk -l /path/to/imgfile.img > fdisk.txt
where /path/to/imgfile.img is the full path to the .img file you are trying to access.

A file named fdisk.txt should be in the same location from where the command was run. Please copy and paste the contents of it or attach it in your next reply.
