First, I'm not at *all* familiar with the device you used or with the
format of a ".bin" file. I'm assuming it's a normal bit copy ("dd"
style). If the device puts an proprietary crap in the image, then all
bets are off. Having said that:

> # mount -o loop -t iso9660 image001.bin /media/test

1) If it's from a Windows XP system, then why is the fstype iso9660?

2) The loop driver is not partition aware. If this is a whole disk
image, and not a partition image, then the mount command will not

Run mmls (or sfdisk -l -uS) on the image file to determine the start of
the partition you want to examine. Pass an offset to loop to that
partition. Normally, it's 63 sectors (*512 bytes/sector)

mount -t ntfs -o loop,offset=32256 image001.bin /media/test
