[TIPS] Mount/Unmount ISO In Ubuntu

Mount and Unmount an ISO CD/DVD in Ubuntu without burning them is a very useful way to check or see what is inside the CD/DVD without waste your CDs/DVDs. I got this trick from this website, and i would like to share it for you.

The simplest way to do that you can use this nautilus script and follow this steps:

  1. Download this mount-unmount and extract to your home folder
  2. Give execute permission to those files. You can use this command:
    sudo chmod +x /home/username/mount.sh /home/username/unmount.sh
  3. Copy those 2 files to /home/username/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/
  4. Now you have a nautilus script, now you can mount an iso by right click and select scripts —> mount-iso. Or unount an iso by right click and select scripts —> unmount-iso. See the screenshot.

Ok that’s it. Please leave me any comment. Have a nice day…
