With aptoncd I created an ISO file, then mounted that file with mount -o loop to /media/MyDir. I can now see its content and browse through its content.

The full command is as below:

sudo mount ~/Downloads/aptoncd-2014-05-28-CD1.iso /media/IsoNarmafzar/ -t iso9660 -o loop

The problem is that I want to see this mounted block in software & Updates section to select it and install softwares from ISO file rather than Internet:

Software and updates

Make sure you correctly mounted the device. Run ls /media/ to check it – user284234 May 28 '14 at 12:29
@begueradj dude, as I said I can see and browse the content. It's correctly mounted. I just want to somehow add it in Installable from CD-ROM/DVD section. – Alireza Hos May 28 '14 at 15:38
