    mounting ntfs image from ddrescue

    I am getting stumped on the syntax for mounting this ntfs file partition I made from a failing hard drive.

    Code:
    Disk image: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xe0c5913d
    
    Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    image1              63    40965749    20482843+  1c  Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
    image2   *    40965750   353525885   156280068    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    image3       353527808  1250260991   448366592    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
    image5       353529856  1250260991   448365568    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    Here is what im using, that i know is good.

    Code:
    sudo mount -o loop,offset=229563170816 image /mnt
    This is what i get when I try and put the filesystem option in.

    Code:
    /media/B2402CAC402C796D/mnt$ sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,offset=229563170816 image /mnt
    [sudo] password for swrd: 
    NTFS signature is missing.
    Is there anyone here who can help, or who has done this before?

    Code:
    /media/B2402CAC402C796D/mnt# mount -t ntfs-3g -o loop,offset=181007286272 jimbob /mnt

    I tried changing the image name thinking that I might not be calling the right file.

    Then I discovered that I wasn't calling the right ntfs type, so I plugged in ntfs-3 and it mounted right on up. I thought I would post this if anyone else had the same problem.
