Help with virtual drive in linux

Hi all.

Firstly, thanks for your time. I appreciate it.

Now I have a language learning course CD in my Computer. There are four files - course.img, course.ccd, course.cue, course.sub that belong to the CD. I have no idea what is the significance of each of these file types. (img file is the biggest).

Now I want to mount the image and play it. How do I do that ?

I tried mount -t udf -o loop course.img /home/somefolder
and mount -t cramfs -o loop course.img soomefolder
and mount -t iso9660 -o loop course.img soomefolder

but each of these gives the following error
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

How do I mount it and learn the course ?

Also, could anyone tell me how to write the image into a CD ?

The exams are not so far away so am hoping for a quick reply !

Thank you so much

What you have there is an image created with CloneCD on Windows. Unfortunately, there is no way to natively read that image in anything but CloneCD.

You will need to use ccd2iso to convert the proprietary image to a standard ISO file. It might be in your distributions repository, otherwise you will have to install it manually.

Once you have the ISO, just mount it with:

mount -o loop ./filename.iso /mnt/loop
