So, I managed to mount /dev/plopXXXXX after extracting the TAR-file. That's obviously great. However, my fairly limited knowledge about dealing with block devices means I am not entirely sure what to do from here. Essentially, I would like to do something like this:

- List the file contents on the device
- Search through the contents to find what I am looking for
- Extract only the information I need

How would I go about doing that? Any input is greatly appreciated.
