Getting CD Volume name of mounted images

I am having a hard time getting the volume name of a cd-image.

"volname /dev/dvd" works for a real inserted cd/dvd, but I am trying to use it on a mounted .iso/.bin/.cue file.

Volname just fails in these circumstances complaining about that it is not a device but a directory, etc. I mounted the .bin/.cue file with cdemu.

Is there an easy way of doing this?

sounds like you are trying to run volname command on the directory where the iso is mounted.
volname needs the iso file as an argument, not the mount point.

ah so "volname isofile.bin" ?

I also tried that but all I got was garbage. Somebody suggested "cat isofile.bin | strings | less" which extracted all strings from the bin file including the volume name. But I don't think that is the way to do it

Try 'isoinfo -d -i isofile.bin' (part of the 'mkisofs' package).
