Question Explore and Extract ISO to Hard Disk


Hi all!

Two days ago i completely deleted Win from my Lap-Top.

Now I'm looking for a program to Explore and Extract ISO files to the Hard Disk (I don't need to get an ISO from a Cd, I already have the .iso file and I want to explore and extract it in a folder on my HD). In Win I used Craxtion4 (www craxtion com -> "...Craxtion has an ISO Explorer as well which lets you view the contents of an ISO
and extract individual files from it...").

A friend told me that also is possible doing it by command line, is it true? And what that command would be?

Hope someone can help me....

I already found a lot of very useful tips in this forum, thanks everybody writing here

ByEz!

Do this:
Code:
md /mnt/iso
Code:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 <filename>.iso /mnt/iso
The first command must be done by root.
Use the name of the file in the place of <filename>.

That's all!

Thank you very much, I just tried it:

Code:
[root@Ste Documents]# mount -o loop -t iso9660 /home/ste/cd.iso /mnt/iso
But I get an error Message:

mount: wrong fs type, invalid option, superblock on /dev/loop0 damaged,
or too many file systems mounted
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

Wich is a translation from the Italian Message I get:

mount: tipo fs errato, opzione non valida, superblocco su /dev/loop0 danneggiato,
o troppi file system montati
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

What's wrong?

The .iso command is excellent. I had no idea it would be this simple. I do have another question for you though; can you also extract .bin files? Basically we're talking about files ready for burning, as I magine this is what most people use .iso and .bin (with a .cue) file for. I do understand the importance of .cue and similar configuration files, only some utilities can detect the better known .bins without the configs. Is there such a tool under linux? How about trying to specify a standard at the console and just trying it? Can it be done?

mount -o loop -t iso9660 <filename>.so /mnt/iso works flawlessly for me. Now how about .bin files?

I got the solution. Xbox Iso images aren't ISO09660 format:

Hope this may be useful to someone other than me

What about the BIN Files?

I am curious about this too. A few more functions ported over from Windows Virtual Machine to my real Linux box, and I will raraly need the VM ( it still runs my software to back to DVD, we are talking hundreds of GB's so tar won't cut it. ).

So, bin reading/extracting utiltiy anyone?

I just wanted to say...

YOU ROCK!!

I was looking through Google trying to figure out what was wrong with the syntax (I was trying to run this command slightly differently) and found your post.

You are THE MAN, It's 3:40 AM and .. well .. you know what it's like to be sitting in front of a server at this time trying to move 6 ISO's through tar, bla bla bla, long story. Bottom line you saved me a hell of a lot of time.

I appreciate it.

Thanks Heaps !!!!! :-) :-) :-) :-)

Thanks,

Working with filesystem images ISO BIN

Old post (by a couple of months), but if I add the solution, then somone else can figure out how to do it!

Mount the iso anywhere you like using the above command. You don't need to be root if you mount it in your home directory. Once mounted, it becomes an active filesystem, but of ISO9660, rather than ext2,3 VFat or Reiser format, for example. Change into this directory, and if you want to extract the contents, then simply copy or move the contents to another directory. The above command creates a 'mount point', a 'location' where a new filesystem can be mounted. It doesn't matter what type you, it could be gmail filesystme for all that matters.For this example it's an iso9660 because we're talking about mounting a iso9660.

Also check out the power of the dd command here, which also covers ISO management well.

Read the wiki for everything else.

Ironically, I can't seem to figure out how to umount it! I issued:

mount -t iso9660 /mnt/sdb1/images/CD1.iso /home/user/ISO_IMAGE_MNT/ -o loop

to mount it, and as it's not listed in fstab, I can't umount it knowing any of the methods I have in my small repertoire. Any tips please!
