What you mean with that ''/path/to/mount'' ?

Where you want it mounted. For example, if you want to mount it to /mnt/iso you could do:

sudo mkdir /mnt/iso
sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path/to/iso /mnt/iso

After type it recieve the following error:
'' mount: bad usage
Try 'mount --help' for more information. ''

Looks like something is wrong with the command. Can you copy and paste the exact command you are using? Is it possible you have some un-escaped spaces?

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop /home/zumaha/Downloads/diablo II Instal/Diablo II - install.iso /mnt/iso

You need to escape those spaces(or use quotes). Try this:

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop /home/zumaha/Downloads/diablo\ II\ Instal/Diablo\ II\ -\ install.iso /mnt/iso

As a result i recieve this:

mount: /mnt/iso: WARNING: device write-protected, mounted read-only.

That is normal. It is an ISO so it is going to be read only.

Are you trying to modify it?

How to open to see the files in ?

You can use your file manager and browse to /mnt/iso

Alternatively, from the command line, you could:

cd /mnt/iso

Thanks it WORKED :stuck_out_tongue:
