Back in 2012 I created a 7.5GB file named
My guess is that I ran
dd on an 8GB SD card from one of my cameras. Why?
I confirmed that
ec6a4994f4148912abb199505b98f01g in its filename is its md5sum, so the file is intact relative to whenever I added its sum to its name.
file reports that is data.
partx reports 'failed to read partition table'. never used partx before.
fdisk reports 'doesn't contain a valid partition table'
sudo losetup -f <filename> puts it at /dev/loop0 as reported by
losetup -a, but doesn't make any loop0pN, and my subsequent attempts at
mount -t <type> /dev/loop0 <mount-point> fail as above.
mount -o loop -t auto fails, saying I need to specify the filesystem type. It also fails if I specify vfat or ntfs.
Seeking advice on how to proceed.
