It looks like you have done an image of only partition1 not the whole device. Try imaging the whole device instead.

dd if=/dev/sdb of=[output path] conv=noerror,sync

Then try running mmls on the image.

You can probably run fls directly on the image you’ve created as you only have the partition imaged.

$ fls usb-copy.dd

Hey! Jessica, I am getting the error “Cannot determine the File System Type” when I tried to look out the File System details for a forensic image.

Can you please help me out ?

If this is a full disk image then you will need to tell fsstat where the partition starts in order to get the stats on it. I would suggest using mmls to get the partition list first. Once you have the offset of the partition then use the -o option in fsstat.
