How to: Mount an ISO image under Linux

September 11th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

In this how to, we’ll give a quick step by step instructions on how to extract ISO CD images in your Linux operating systems. In case you only need a single file or a set of files from an ISO, you can do so as well by avoiding to install the entire thing on your system.

To mount:

$ sudo mkdir /mnt/iso
$ sudo mount -o loop image.iso /mnt/iso

If the above mount option fails, try:

$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso

That’s it! Just go into /mnt/iso folder and browse all files. If you need to copy a single file out, simply do:

$ cp /mnt/iso/key.txt ~

The above will copy key.txt to your home folder.
