[linux-audio-user] [OT] disk recovery problem

It is a kind of OT, but I couldn't find any useful information, and
I already wasted half a day on this problem, so I thought someone here
would be able to help me.
It seems like my partition table is messed up, and I am not able to
mount all my partitions. For example, mount refuse to mount /dev/hda12
on any directory: when I do a mount -r /dev/hda12 /mnt/tmp, mount tells
me that hda12 is already mounted, or that /mnt/tmp is busy. The
partition is not mounted for sure, and I tried several other tempory
locations, without any success. The "funny" part is that a fsck.ext3
/dev/hda12 doesn't give me any error when I check the filesystem (which
let me some hope about the possible recovery).
Basically, I think the problem is only coming from a wrong partition
table, but I don't know how to recover the good beginning/end of the
partitions (the partitions used for the OS itself seem OK, my linux is
works flawlessly, "only" my last data partitions are not accessible
anymore). All my partitions are ext3.
Thank, and my apologies for the OT,
