mount -o loop -t iso9660 file.iso /directory

what i need to change, to convert all directory and file names to lowercase?

i don't understand the question. – akira Nov 14 '11 at 12:35
when you mount an iso image, all files and directories has uppercase name, like DIRECTORY/FILE.TXT. I need to set them to lowercase, eg: directory/file.txt – WombaT Nov 14 '11 at 13:01
on the iso? you want to remaster the iso? or only on the mounted directory? – akira Nov 14 '11 at 13:55
only on mounted directory. – WombaT Nov 14 '11 at 14:02

You probably want to add check=relaxed and map=normal after -o
Check the iso9660 section of mounts manual.
