Too little information. Tell us what you tried (the exact command) and what happened (any error message).

Our recoder device that stores all videos of several cameras doesn t work any longer.
Before doing anything on the the device or the disk I made a full backup oft he disk with dd.
Trying to mount this file simple with mount -o loop save.dd /mnt/backup fails.
I found out that VDR are using non-standard disk-configurations and filesystems.
So my question if there is a way to get access the files in the image.
Tools like parted don t show partions in the  bckup-file.
