What did you do to cause this.

Or, what happened recently before this happened?

Can you post the output of:

sudo fdisk -l
And which drive are you trying to access?

You should be able to mount the paritions using:

sudo mkdir /mnt/sdb1
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
I see no reason why you cannot do this. The structure looks ok from the command you provided.

I also see that you may be using the wrong command:

The volume uses the sbd
Which should be sdb
