I got a raw .img image from the Internet Archive and I would like to mount it on my Linux, or at least convert it to an ISO file.
This image works fine under Windows, when using e.g. MagicDisk to emulate a virtual CD drive.
Under Linux, however, most solutions I found on the net do not work here:
Mounting it as an ISO-9660 image (i.e.
mount -t iso9660 ...)
Image is not an ISO-9660 file, so it fails:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so $ dmesg | tail ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
fileprovides no useful information:
`cdrom.img: AIX core file fulldump 32-bit 64-bit`
parted, as suggested here, does not help:
Disk cdrom.img: 124 MB, 124749824 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 15 cylinders, total 243652 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00000000 Disk cdrom.img doesn't contain a valid partition table $ sudo parted cdrom.img GNU Parted 2.3 Using /tmp/cdrom.img Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands. (parted) u Unit? [compact]? B (parted) print Error: /tmp/cdrom.img: unrecognised disk label
Most tools which I usually apply to ISO files (e. g. Ark to uncompress and read contents) do not work either, since it is not an archive.
How can I mount, or at least convert this kind of file?
