Problems mounting an image .iso


Hi,

I am trying to mount an image XXX.iso. I am on FC2 / KDE. Kernel version 2.6.
KDE 3.2.2.

I have tried the following:

mount -t iso9660 -o loop XXX.iso /some/mount/point/
mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 XXX.iso /some/mount/point/

Please note that the mount point exists.

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

What could be the problem? Need some help.

Regard,
kroy.

Hi,

I tried the following:

mount XXX.iso /root/XXX -o loop

I got the following response :

/dev/loop0: Invalid argument
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Then, went for :

mount XXX.iso /root/XXX -o loop -t iso9660

I get the following response:

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

Regrads,
Kaushik.

maybe the image file is corrupted, or has an odd filesystem type.
I had the impression that iso9660 format is automatically detected.
Is this a cd or a dvd image?
try:
Code:
isoinfo -d -i <image_file>
this should display you some info about the image

also, what distro are you running? Have you tried to mount another iso image? maybe the feature is disabled in the kernel, which I doubt..

P.S. By the way...Welcome to LQ Forums

Hi,

To my surprise "isoinfo" not a recognized command!
I am using Fedora Core Release 2 Tettnang Distribution.
This is the first time I am mounting an image. It is a CD image.

Regards,
kroy.

That's really strange. I booted my fedora Core 3 partition and isoinfo is present.
I also tried to mount an image, and it mounted fine. Is the image downloaded?
Is there any way to check the integrity of the image? It may be corrupted.
If you have a fast connection download it again
