"no such file or directory" means that there isnt afile on the computer with that name.
try replacing /tmp/cd1.iso with the location of the cd iso. (example /home/Desktop/cd1.iso, or wherever iy is.)

Your question is not entirely clear, but maybe this will help. If you have a CD, you can "create an iso image" from it with the following: "dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/cd1.iso bs=2048" . This assumes that /dev/cdrom is your cdrom device (the input file, or if), that your output file (of) is /tmp/cd1.iso, and it uses a blocksize of 2048. You should be able then to mount the iso image with the loopback device as described.
