    Mounting ISO help

    I am running Ubuntu off of a CD because I have a faulty operating system. Because of this I can not burn an iso file. So I have been trying to mount the iso with no luck. I have gone to a number of sites and tried every combination I can think of of the command:

    mount -o loop -t iso9660 FILE.iso /mnt/iso

    the error message is:

    ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Invalid argument

    Any help? Or better yet, maybe there is a way to eject the CD so I can just burn the iso file?

    What kind of partition are you trying to mount the image from? Some filesystems are problematic when it comes to mounting images.

    Do you happen to be in /mnt/iso when you are trying to mount it?
