[root@localhost Tai]# mount /home/Tai/Doom3/doom3CD1.iso /home/Tai/virtual -o loop
ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: Device or resource busy
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
[root@localhost Tai]# unmount /home/Tai/virtual
bash: unmount: command not found
[root@localhost Tai]#


I took out the dash and it still didnt work so I tried unmounting, didnt work either.

There is no such command "unmount". Once again, you have to learn Linux syntax.
Secondly for the test's sake:
1. rename image to "test.iso"
2. Watch for correct syntax!
It's apparent that you have some stack process running. But we here do not discuss this topic. Please, before mounting restart your box.

Is there any program I can use to mount iso's? I got nero linux edition but it didn't work, it does the load screen and nothing pops up.

What I see missing, I think, is -t iso9660 in your mount command:

mount -t iso9660 -o loop /home/Tai/Doom3/doom3-CD1.iso /home/Tai/virtual

OR:

Take this one step back up the chain:

When you compiled your kernel, did you configure it to build the loopback device, either as a part of the kernel or as a module? If not, you may need to do that if it wasn't built into whatever stock kernel you are using.

The code has been tested several times and it doesn't need anything else:

That "ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: Device or resource busy" error message from mounting comes from when the table of contents (TOC) for the cd iso has file sizes in it that are longer than the actual files are. I.e. Priacy Protected cds. I haven't found a way around this yet, but I have found a no-cd crack for Matlab 7.0 R14 (Student Version) SP1 which stops you from having to continuly put in you Matlab cd every time you want to use matlab.

A new thread should be posted "Backup a Write-protected CD in linux". That way we can get matlab and doom3 working right,
