I wanted to mount .iso files in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. In windows I used Virtual CD-ROMs. Then, I searched for the similar for linux and found some helpful commands that does the same job. have also found GUI for that command. GUI was developed using Python and Glade. Lets install Virtual CD-ROM in our linux box. There are nothing but commands, I love them.
Open your terminal and type the following commands, The first command creates the directory fakecd, and second command mounts cd.iso to the directory we recently created other commands are there just to make our life easier. 😀
asee@asee-hp:~$ mkdir fakecd
asee@asee-hp:~$ sudo mount cd.iso fakecd -o loop
where cd.iso is your cd image and fakecd the directory where you want your ‘virtual cd’ be.
If the above fails :
asee@asee-hp:~$ sudo modprobe loop
asee@asee-hp:~$ sudo mount /<path_to_iso> /<mount_point> -t iso9660 -o loop
To reset the changes you made, simply use the command below
asee@asee-hp:~$ umount /<mount_point>
All this command does is unmounts the mount point you set, using previous mount command.
Have Funs ! Enjoys Games. If you want to share CD-ROMs in network better create Virtual CD-ROMs and share it. It increases data transfer much higher then physical CD-ROMs.
Are you looking for GUI for above command, its called gmountiso. To Dowload gmountiso type
asee@asee-hp:~$ sudo apt-get install gmountiso
Below is the screenshot of GmountISO
Have a nice day.
