how to mount iso files

i have a3.5 giga iso file and
i try to mount it to a directory to see its contents
i have made a directory
i ran this line in terminal
mount -t iso9660 -o loop old.iso /mnt/Z
and i get this error
mount: Not a directory
when itry to mount to a non existing directory i get this error
mount: mount point /mnt/notthere does not exist
so i know that the directory /mnt/Z is not the issue

You missed the loop device.
mount -t iso9660 -o loop=/dev/loop0 old.iso /mnt/Z
