Use the file command to inspect your *.img file. It may be an image of a DVD which would be what a *.iso file would be except that the UDF filesystem is used instead for dvd's.

Try mounting the file using the udf filesystem.

The manpage for isodump indicates that it is used to verify iso9660 filesystems. So it may not be what you want.
