    How to mount an iso on an external hard drive?

    Hello all,

    I am having problems mounting an iso on my external hard drive. I do not want to move it onto my linux partition because it is 3.6 GB. I have a directory made (/media/iso) that I would like to mount it in, but if that doesn't work then I don't care where it goes. After I mount it I want to be able to run it using Wine, but that will come later. For now I just need to get it mounted. And, of course, I am fairly new to linux/ubuntu.

    I use the app GISOmount to mount them. Seems easier to me than trying to remember mount points and commands. But that might just be because I am kind of old.

    I downloaded gISOmount and tried to mount it. It was a very simple set up but it gave me the error "File selected is not an ISO" and wouldn't mount.

    Is there a way to fix this or are there any other ideas?
