Try this command again and post the output from it:

su
mount -o loop sdhc_copy2.img /mnt/sdhc_img

[root@mepis1 sdc1]# su
[root@mepis1 sdc1]# mount -o loop sdhc_copy2.img /mnt/sdhc_img
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

[root@mepis1 sdc1]# su
[root@mepis1 sdc1]# ls sdhc_copy2.img
sdhc_copy2.img
[root@mepis1 sdc1]#


1 thing i hav moved the recup1 n 2 to a folder...
i guess that has nothing to do with this... as sdhc_copy2.img is still at the original location
right??

Yea.. odd, as I can mount a disk image of a fat formatted image ,without specifying the file system type. Anyway, let's try it this way. Let me know what you get (and if that doesn't work, we can try it with an offset for the first partition in it):

su
mount -o loop -t vfat sdhc_copy2.img /mnt/sdhc_img

[root@mepis1 sdc1]# su
[root@mepis1 sdc1]# mount -o loop -t vfat sdhc_copy2.img /mnt/sdhc_img
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

OK.. It's not letting us mount it for some reason. The file system may still have errors that need fixing with something like chkdsk.

Try this set to try and fix errors one more time, specifying it as vfat, and if that doesn't work, we won't go any further with it, since it looks like we'd be wasting our time trying to get it to mount:

fsck.vfat -y sdhc_copy2.img
mount -o loop -t vfat sdhc_copy2.img /mnt/sdhc_img

Let me know what that does. If it mounted without errors that last time, we'll try this command to copy it's contents to the folder we created named recovered1

su
cp -r /mnt/sdhc_img /mnt/sdd1/recovered1

If it doesn't mount, recheck to make sure photorec got all of your photos (you'd have to view each one of them to see, not going by thumbnails alone). If not, what you'll need to try and do is get a known good sdhc card (preferably the same 4GB size as the one you have now), and we can copy the disk image file back to a good card, then let Windows check it for errors and fix them using chkdsk -f

I would not suggest running chkdsk /f from Windows against the original card until you are sure you got everything you need from it (although we can try that if you want to risk it, as that's up to you if you think you've got most of your images already). So, depending on what you have now, we can figure out the best approach for any further recovery.
