Smile How to mount .bin file


I need to mount a .bin file which is a VCD image.
I tried to :
"mount -t auto -o loop my_bin_file.bin /mnt/my_destination_folder"
and I have got :
"mount: you must specify the filesystem type"
I also tried :
"mount -t iso9660 -o loop *.bin /mnt/my_destination_folder"
and I got :
"mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so"
Can anyone help me to mount this VCD image file to a some directory?

I've never tried mounting images in Linux, but I will try as soon as I get home from work.

I'm pretty sure setting the FS type to ISO9660 isn't going to work as the image wasn't saved using the ISO9660 filesystem layout.

You might find this link helpful. Note that a "movie player" is used to view the image contents.

Oddly enough (as happens often with me), a Google on this yielded this LQ thread
