|That's because "/media/diskname" is a mountpoint, not a device.|
If sdb is the device that is mounted there, you would want to first unmount it and then run ddrescue like this:
sudo ddrescue /dev/sdb1 /dev/sda1 log
Where sda1 is the target hard disk partition that you want to *overwrite*.
If you only want to create an image as a file on sda1, then mount it, change directory to it and run
sudo ddrescue /dev/sdb1 image log
Where "image" is the file and log is another file which is the recovery log. You need to recovery log to be able to resume the process, if you interrupt it.
