    Can't mount iso

    I'm having a problem when trying to mount a .iso file.
    I tried the command "sudo mount -o loop image.iso /mnt/"
    but a message shows saying: "image.iso: there is no such file or directory"
    Please help, really need to mount the .iso.

    Re: Can't mount iso

    The error message you got, means there is no file named 'image.iso' in the current directory. Navigate to the directory that has it and use this command again.
    So, you were talking about that... ummm... that... errr...
    Oh, yes, yes...

    What do you mean with current directory. The .iso file is in my downloads folder.

    Open a terminal.

    Either cd (change directory) into downoalds:

    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    Or use the full path and name of the .iso

    Code:
    mount -o loop -t iso9660 /home/user/Downloads/name_of.iso /mnt
    See :

    http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.org/

    You may want to make a directory to mount that at

    Code:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/iso
    Then use /mnt/iso as your mount point.
