    Default Mounting iso files to install directly

    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

    You've to be more specific. Can you specify your error message and commands you are typing?

    Code:
    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
    Usually you need to type
    Code:
    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
    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 here

    You can use cp as follows to copy all files to a directory called
    Code:
    /usr/games/foo
    cd /mnt/cd
    cp -avr * /usr/games/foo
    Another option is to use GUI based file manager to copy and paste the files. Click on Place > Computer > File system > mnt > cd .
    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.
