leo5111,

You sure it is an iso image? It is bootable?

Create a directory or mount point:

sudo mkdir /home/leo/Virtual_Disk1

Use mount command, (assumes that your ISO file name is MyMultimedia.iso).

sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 MyMultimedia.iso /home/leo/Virtual_Disk1

It should now show in your home folder.
