Hey guys... im a newbie to linux and am trying to install a game i have downloaded. I used to use windows and with a program called magic disc i could mount the iso image and load the game without having to burn any disc's.
I'm just wondering if such software exists for linux ultimate 2.2
If not how can i get round having to burn it on to disc to be able to install the game..
Any info wud be much appreciated

Thanx for the link mate ive tried this but not 100% sure how to do this as i keep gettin error messages...
where do i need to have the file saved and could you give me a quick help with how to use terminal lol sorry about all the questions lol am really new to this and am finding it hard adapting to the change frm windows
You've to be more specific. Can you specify your error message and commands you are typing?
These are the commands im writing
mdkir -p /home/lee/Desktop/The Sims 3 + EXTRAS/The Sims 3 - Razor1911
mount -o loop rzr.sim3.iso /home/lee/Desktop/The Sims 3 + EXTRAS/The Sims 3 - Razor1911
all this does is bring me up a list of commands i can do within mount... could you please give me a step guide how to load it from where i have it stored lol
This is the file location - /home/lee/Desktop/The Sims 3 + EXTRAS/The Sims 3 - Razor1911
And the iso file is called rzr-sim3.iso
please please any info wud be so gratefull... a step by step guide from the biggening would be super awsome... sorry again to sound like apleb just really new to this
Usually you need to typeCode:sudo su mdkir -p /home/lee/Desktop/The Sims 3 + EXTRAS/The Sims 3 - Razor1911 mount -o loop rzr.sim3.iso /home/lee/Desktop/The Sims 3 + EXTRAS/The Sims 3 - Razor1911
If there are blank spaces in a file name either escape them using \ or put in double quotes. Try it out and let us know.. if there are any error paste it back hereCode:sudo bash mkdir -p /mnt/cd mount -o /path/to/isofile.iso /mnt/cd cd /mnt/cd ls -l pwd cp file /to/somewhere/else
Cheers mate ive finally got into the disc lol
having another problem now.. some of the files are highlithed in blue and when copied says ommitting directory... when im installing the game its asking me for these files but cant seem to get it to pull it off the disc... any idea's ???
Thanx again for all you rhelp on this matter.. is very much appreciated
You can use cp as follows to copy all files to a directory calledAnother option is to use GUI based file manager to copy and paste the files. Click on Place > Computer > File system > mnt > cd .Code:/usr/games/foo cd /mnt/cd cp -avr * /usr/games/foo
Once there just copy all files pressing CTRL+A and CTRL+C to copy all files.
Then go to destination folder and hit CTRL+V to paste files.
