ISO mount error

Hello everyone
i am trying to mount some ISO file and this the error i am getting
[root@80 Games]# mount -t ISO9660 Kohan-Immortal-Sovereigns-linux.iso /mnt/Kohan/ -o loop
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?)
I am using Mandrake 10.0
what am i doing wrong. I have tried all the other options like
# mount -o loop file.iso directory
and it just do not want to mount
SO have any creative idea?

Well, I'd try without -t ISO9660 to allow auto-detect. If it still fails..are you sure the image is OK? Maybe it's just corrupted?

tried that
mount uplink-linux.iso /mnt/Kohan/ -o loop

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

this is wat i get with another iso
perhaps the both are corrupted but i have no way to check it.

I'd try with iso9660 instead of ISO9660 ... Linux is
quite unforgiving with wrong case ;)

its the spell check sorry
thus i already learned
the question is if i am doing it the right way ? the command lines that i wrote with " -t iso9660" and without the difference is is the autodetect linux does when i do not write it?
