Thats to be expected.  /dev/sdd is not normally a mountable partition, 
but it does contain the partitioning data even if its only one partition 
encompassing the whole device.

So you can "mount" /dev/sdd1 if the partition table data is in a format 
known to mount.  Obviously you can't mount a reiserfs partition by 
telling mount "-t ext4".  Man mount s/b your friend.
