Here are some things I have tried with no luck...

sfdisk: ERROR: sector 0 does not have an msdos signature

Why run sfdisk?

mount -o loop wdcdns1.img /mnt/tmp/

Why are you using '-o loop'. You already have the loop device setup. Couldn't you just:
prompt> mount /dev/loop5 /mnt/tmp
... or, if you didn't create the loop device already
prompt> mount -o loop /root/wdcdns1.img /mnt/tmp

mount: you must specify the filesystem type
---
mount -t xfs -o loop,ro,noatime,nodev,nofsck ~/wdcdns1.img /mnt/tmp/

mount: unknown filesystem type 'xfs'

Is the xfs module loaded?  (do you have xfs support?)
