I am looking at different ways to mount an .iso in Ubuntu and I have not found a way to get a virtual CD-Rom to work. I have tried the GUI methods and none seem to work for me. I even tried installing MagicDisc using Wine, but of course it fails due to a lack of drivers. I have some software that requires running from CD, but due to battery life, I prefer to simply create an .iso of the cd and mount in a virtual drive. (IGF & HerrGlock - I'm sure one of your guys knows the answer on this one.) I have tried: sudo mkdir /media/CDImage sudo mount /path/to/ISO-file /media/CDImage -o loop But, it didn't want to work for me. Any suggestions are appreciated.
