Code:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso
Of course the mountpoint must exist

I guess you get the info about the mount command usage. So as root create a mountpoint:
Code:
mkdir /mnt/iso
Then cd to the directory where is your iso file.
From that directory issue the command I gave you (of course change filename.iso to the name of your .iso file) and if doesn't work post here the response.
Regards

Then your .iso file is probably damaged.

Maybe, you don't have 'loop devices' in your kernel configuration? Could you post the mount's logs here?

Just copy all the stuff mount prints and paste here. Don't forget to add a [code] tag.
Sorry, 'logs' seems to be the wrong word... I should have used 'output'

I'm sorry, I was not completely correct
Please, give the output of suggested earlier:
Code:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso

Are you sure you get 'device in use' when you try to mount? Maybe it's when you run umount?
And again, output with the exact error could be helpful...
