i don't know about GUIs, but it's dead easy to do via the command line:
sudo mount -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/

Where disk1.iso is the ISO you want mounted and /mnt/ is the location you want mounted to. Just make sure that your mount location already exists (ie create an empty directory if it doesn't).

There's bound to be a ton of GUI tools that act as wrappers around that command but I've never bothered as this is one of those things that is so easy to do via the console that it would take longer to find, install and launch a GUI app.

sounds like most of the iso mounting software may just be a front end. I may just do it the command way since i'm only thinking of messing with 2 or 4 discs any ways. On the other hand I can GUI which might be helpful because i just realized i might be using more isos than i though (command and conquer FTW biggrin.gif )

i'm not sure memorizing a command versus clicking a button is simpler. Not that I would never use that method. Thanks for the suggestions.

to be fair, the onlt bit you need to remember is -o loop as the rest is pretty obvious:
mount an iso to the following destination
ie
mount -o loop iso destination


But then it's what you're used to i guess. i've been using text interfaces all my life (BASIC, CP/M, DOS, etc) so the *nix command line was a natural progression and most GUIs seem alien to me.

TO the destination or do you mean from? I would thing - loop o mount iso /path/ or - loop o mount /path/ iso. Becasue normaly i choose where i my ISO is located then mount it to a predefined location by software. Either way typing is less convenient than a click or two.

I think you're better off with a GUI because, and I don't mean to be rude but you clearly cannot bothered to read.
  • You've completely garbled the "-o loop" bit and that was very clearly stated in the very post you've replied to.
  • "destination" is a very specific term - there's no ambiguity in it's meaning. Plus it's a very commonly used term in comping (ie copy a file from the following source to the following destination).
  • and I even provided you with a Linux that reiterated the same instructions I gave you but in a little more detail. In case you needed a point of reference.
I really can't help you unless you try to help yourself smile.gif

Also, please remember that even with a GUI, you'd have to read the messages that come on screen - just like you would with a command line interface.

Yeah i garbled it i was referring to it rather than stating how it would actually look but, any ways i realized all it is is a matter of choosing where the iso is (cd, change directory) insert the command and out your destination, for me that would be a cd or dvd drive so i can install my game. The only problem is i'm at wits end dealing with another issue so i don't think i'll be mounting any ISOs soon ( total system failure/freezing) but, thats another story.
