Mount an ISO (CD Image) on linux

From Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
mount -o loop -t iso9660 /path/to/image.iso /mnt/

Problem - ISO-13346 "UDF" file system

I recently got the following error when I tried the above:

server:/mnt# ls -la
total 5
dr-xr-xr-x  1 root root  112 Aug 31  2009 .
drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 Mar 28  2009 ..
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root root  135 Aug 31  2009 readme.txt
server:/mnt# cat readme.txt
This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification.

This was a Windows 7 DVD I wanted to check would mount ok.


mount -o loop -t udf,iso9660 /path/to/image.iso /mnt/
