iso files are a type of archive for cd images.
you will need to mount the iso image using

mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 cd_image.iso /cdrom

where cd_image.iso is the iso file and /cdrom is the location you wish to mount to.

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop foo.iso /mnt/storage
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Inappropriate ioctl for device
notig@ubuntu:~/Desktop$

btw the file is called foo.iso . ANd im not sure what i did wrong???? cd_image.iso was suppose to be the filename right? BTW loop0 is not a directory but loop is! was that a typo?

try
losetup /dev/loop
what does it say?

everything else looks ok though

I typed this and it worked :

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop,ro /home/notig/Desktop/sith.iso /mnt

btw you can use -t auto instead of -t iso9660 which works for most file systems too.
had you just not put the full path in or is there another file that doesn't work?
if so it may just be corrupted

I'm pretty sure mplayer can just play an iso without it even being mounted... just "mplayer /path/to/file.iso"
