Mounting B00, B6I, and B6T files?

I am running Slackware 12.0 and am trying to mount a B00 file. I know how to mount iso images (mount -o loop filename /mnt/mountplace) but that doesnt work for this file. I get the error
"mount: No such file or directory"

So I ran "mount -v -o loop *.B00 /mnt/mountplace" and ended up with:

mount: going to use the loop device /dev/loop0
mount: you didn't specify a filesystem type for /dev/loop0
I will try all types mentioned in /etc/filesystems or /proc/filesystems
Trying ext4dev
Trying msdos
Trying gfs2
Trying gfs2meta
mount: No such file or directory

I also tried "mount -v -o loop -t iso9660 *.B00 /mnt/mountplace" and I ended up with:

mount: going to use the loop device /dev/loop0
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

dmesg gives me:
FAT: invalid media value (0xaf)
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev loop0.
GFS2: not a GFS2 filesystem
GFS2: Unrecognized block device or mount point /dev/loop0
GFS2: gfs2 mount does not exist
Unable to identify CD-ROM format.

I also was browsing on google and found the command "fdisk -C 592 *.B00" which gives me:
Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI or OSF disklabel
Building a new DOS disklabel. Changes will remain in memory only,
until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous
content won't be recoverable.

So... What do I do now? I found multiple sites showing how to get this image to work with Daemon Tools. But I would like to do it without the use of wine if possible.

A quick google for the file extensions suggest that they belong to a piece of software called blindwrite.

I would suspect that this is a proprietary format not supported by mount, etc as it doesn't actually contain a filesystem as such.
