Did you try 'dmesg | tail' like it suggested?

Usually if you can't mount a filesystem it's because it got corrupted somehow,
in this case it might be a "bad superblock" like it says.  dmesg will provide
info on exactly why the mount is failing.  If you haven't done so, try using
'-t auto' or not using -t at all.
