Cannot mount an ISO file OEL 6.4

[root@collabn1 dev]# mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media

mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0

 

I'm trying to mount the OEL 6.4 ISO file which is attached to VirtualBox 4.3.x on my Macbook.

 

I have OEL 6.4 installed on Vbox, but now I want to mount the ISO. Is there missing tools that need to be installed or something else?

    There is no additional software or tools required. The error message means that you do not have the disk image attached to your virtual machine. You first need to attach the iso image to your virtual machine by using the VM devices menu, or by dragging and dropping the iso disk image file onto the disk icon in the virtual machine toolbar. Then you issue the following command:

     

    mount -o loop /dev/cdrom /media
