Problem mounting an iso


Hello guys, I have a problem mounting an .iso that I ftped from windows to linux. My cds and DVDs can be mounted with no problems. These are the errors when I try to mount.

Code:
/home/beo/ # mount old_games.iso /mnt -o loop
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Code:
/home/beo/ # mount -t iso9660 old_games.iso /mnt -o loop
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
missing codepage or other error

Am I missing something here? Is it not working because the .iso is from the windows machine? Thanks

-bhert

It's from the Window$ machine? Try:
Code:
/home/beo/ # mount old_games.iso /mnt -o loop -t joliet
Window$ doesn't like standard iso9660 images. joliet is just a modification to iso9660 that uses UTF-8 for filenames.

Hey burninGpi, thanks for the reply, here is what i got

Code:
/home/beo # mount old_games.iso /mnt -o loop -t joliet
mount: unknown filesystem type 'joliet'

What can I do? Obviosly I don't have that type of filesystem extension.

right, I forgot about the auto thing.
shouldn't the above command be:
Code:
# mount -o loop -t auto old_games.iso /mnt

Thanks for helping but still no go, same error about specifying the filesystem type.
Now the .iso is being dang stubborn, I never knew that windows .iso could cause problems like this.
Any more ideas?

burninGpi, "auto" is a mount option, not a fs type. Try it and see.

bhert, you either have a corrupt iso or you might want to look into this:
