mandyapenguin - Did you even read any of the responses in this thread? I'm guessing no, since nothing you posted will help the OP in any way after what has already been established.

Please read what has already been posted and resolved before adding redundant information and unnecessary "debugging" steps.

Yes ofcourse, As my knowledge there won't be such file.
suicidaleggroll has said to use only
Code:
mount -o loop ~/Desktop/zeldatp.iso /mnt
If you are new to Linux then, you can start learning linux from here.

It doesn't matter, those steps test nothing more than what you've already tested and responded to.

As 273 indicated earlier:

I was reluctant to accept this explanation since Linux file managers often experience "unexpected" failures, but after seeing the same thing with a basic loop mount on the command line, I'd say it's the correct observation. Either the file is corrupted or it's formatted in a way that Linux cannot handle with a typical ISO mount.

I can understand your reluctance. It's also quite possible I have some archiving library installed that fearthepenguin doesn't. Out of interest, what does the following return?
Code:
file /home/owen/Desktop/zeldatp.iso

Is there any way you can confirm that the file is complete and uncorrupted -- i.e. is there an MD5 sum you can check it against?
Assuming the file is complete and uncorrupted then the link provided here may help.

here's what i managed to fish out, i have no idea what an MD5 sum is, but in properties it had it to open with "wine" so i changed it to "archive manager" and the group is "root" owner is "owen" (me) access is "read and write" type is "raw CD image" size "4.7gb" (as it should be 4.7gb) location "/home/owen/Desktop" volume "unknown" accessed "Sun 02 Jun 2013 02:13:06 PM CDT" modified "Tue 08 Sep 2009 07:15:17 AM CDT"

Where did you get the file? Sites which host .iso files often host a number called an md5sum which can be used to test that the file is complete and unaltered. For example to check the Ubuntu iso files:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM
To test a file you would run the command:
Code:
md5sum /home/owen/Desktop/zeldatp.iso
Then you would compare the number given with the number listed on the site you downloaded the file from -- if they match then the file is OK.

All that said, the link I quoted earlier from mandyapenguin could be the answer to your problem. The md5sum is just a nice thing to be able to test so that you know you have the file you're supposed to have before you go on.

The md5sum is this number "0e26a53cba7b58139733a0023d377e41" and if you downloaded from a reputable site then you would likely have seen it listed next to the download link for the image. Sometimes a file called MD5.txt, or similar, is included in torrent downloads also and would contain a string of numbers and letters like that.

However, if you don't have the option to test with the md5sum then you might as well go right ahead and try the method suggested in the linked thread which may turn the file you have into a "proper" ISO image that you can open in archive manager or mount as a loop file system anyhow since you have nothing to lose.

Enough! Whereas the "How to mount an ISO image under Linux" is a valid and interesting topic, the "How to mount a pirate copy of a copyrighted game" is not! The LinuxQuestions policy doesn't allow any kind of help for this kind of task: you're on your own. Thread closed.
