Mount ISO, CUE/BIN, NRG, IMG, MDF files in ubuntu

I known that to mount iso file

pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo mount -o loop file.iso mountpoint
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 file.iso mountpoint

and for cue/bin file ,I convert it to iso first use bchunk
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ bchunk file.bin file.cue file.iso

but how about the others. After some search, I collect tips to handle many types of image file in linux.
For nrg[ nero image ], img [ clone cd] and mdf [ alcohol 120% ] files, We need nrg2iso, ccd2iso and mdf2iso to convert those image files to iso image. Luckily, All are in Feisty repos.
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo aptitude install nrg2iso ccd2iso mdf2iso

then to covert to iso use command
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ mdf2iso file.mdf file.iso
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ ccd2iso file.img file.iso
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ nrg2iso file.nrg file.iso

for nrg file, we can mount it directly by
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo mount -o loop,offset=307200 file.nrg mountpoint

Other choices
cdemu[a kernel module for mounting Cue/Bin files directly] with nautilus script.more
AcetoneISO gui app to mount all image file.

ccd2iso is not in a repository any more.


for fc7:
# extract
# ./configure
# make install

thanks for your comment but it's in universe repos. you need to enable it first.

I'm getting an error trying to convert *.img to *.iso using ccd2iso. The .img file is a device driver for a RAID SCSI card and I don't have a floppy.

Unrecognized sector mode (0) at sector 0!

Any help would be great.

That happend, because you did not give a valid image file. You should give it an *.img file as argument, not the *.ccd one

I keep getting an error converting from img to iso:

"Cannot open source file for reading"

What did I do wrong?

pnix said...

not all img file can covert with ccd2iso. from man page

ccd2iso currently only copies the first session of multisession discs,
as well as outputting a harmless warning of Unrecognized sector mode.

ccd2iso utterly ignores the additional data in CCD or SUB files."

You dont need to convert .nrg files to mount.It can be mounted directly using ->

mount -o loop,offset=307200 image.nrg /wheretomount

sudo apt-get vcdgear
vcdgear -raw2mpg binfile.bin movie.mpg

that is the easiest way to do it without a blank cd


chika said...

"iat" package will work on it

I use Furius ISO mount tool.

Fuirusisomount has worked fine for me.

If you have a DVD and only want to play it, you can do that directly with the player VLC. "Open File", and then select to view all files", not only media files, which is the default.
