that doesn't work for me...the mdf file format does not correspond to iso9660 it seems...

I copied This text from itis the answer to a similar question.

You can read all of the Q/A at This Link


I released in 2005-Oct-21 one patch created by Yuri van Oers this is url

very important for every user, mdf IS NOT PROPRIETARY FORMAT.

mdf is : ISO9660, BIN(2352 or 2448),CDDA and other

mdf is a PROPRIETARY FORMAT , but don't use this for conversion file, if you have CD-GAME you council use this option for convert in binary image
"mdf2iso --toc YOURIMAGEGAME.mdf"

for many DVD-IMAGE mdf is a simple file ISO9660, you try this "isoinfo -i YOURIMAGE.MDF"

if you have another problem writing message in official forum

Best Regards
Salvatore Santagati
I'd try the patch, Might be what you need
