Issues while mounting an iso file

John 406 Reputation points

I typed the following command:
Mount-Image "Z:" "C:\Users...\Documents\CDPLUS.iso"
It resulted an error message.

Can anyone fix this, so that it can mount as read-only?

    In order to solve your problem better , could you please take a screenshot or describe the error more in detail?

    Here is a solution which may be helpful to solve your problem.
    We could mount an iso image using a powershell command.

    1. Search for powershell , right-click the top result , and select the Run as administrator option
    2. Type the following command to mount an iso image and press Enter:
      Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath "PATH\TO\ISOFILE"

    In the command , make sure to replace the "PATH\TO\ISOFILE" with the actual path of the .iso file.
    Once you complete the steps, the ISO image will mount, and you will be able to access the contents to install the application or extract the image contents from the newly-available drive letter.

    Best Regards

    For Mount-Image "Z:" "C:\Users...\Documents\CDPLUS.iso"

    see if changing Mount-Image to Mount-DiskImage works.

    Open administrative Powershell (PS) and type or copy and paste:

    Mount-DiskImage "Z:" "C:\Users...\Documents\CDPLUS.iso"

    When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    Kind of vague but the file may be corrupt. Also try right-click and Mount
