Hi. I don't know exactly what is your problem. I understand that you can't mount a iso cd-rom image. Well,first: the file sistem is not mount on the drive, it's mount on a file (folder). Simply make a folder in your home dir: "~$ mkdir cd_iso" and mount the iso as loop. Supossing the iso is in your home:"~$ mount -o loop image.iso cd_iso".
Good luck.
