[Bug-ddrescue] Testdisk sees what ddrescue does not

I have a troubled disk which won't mount in Linux (or boot up to XP which is what it is).  The 'testdisk' utility correctly indentifies the partitions
(a large 233GB NTFS Windows partition and a small 11GB recovery partition =>  total size 250GB)
and can show actual files on on the windows partition but can't write the partition table to the disk.  ddrescue 1.2-1.3 (on a MEPIS system) with the following command    $ddrescue --no-split  /dev/sdb1  imagefile logfile
'cannot open input file:No such file or directory'
Since cat /proc/partitions shows a sdb entry  '8  16   244198584'  I was able to start the above command with just
$ddrescue --no-split  /dev/sdb  imagefile logfile
but I'm not sure if it is useful (since I know there to be actually two partitions there).
Any advice?
Thanks in advance!
