Actually my image is an alcohol 120 bin/cue image. So I first 
have to find a tool to convert it to iso.  It has also audio tracks 
after the data track.  I guess iso image cant hold audio tracks 
only data.  In this case mounting as a loopback could be used 
for the data only.  The audio part can't be used. Am I right?

The other thing I don't prefer loopback I need to do it as root 
which I don't like.
