I just downloaded some materials, but the extensions are not recognized by Ubuntu.

I have a bunch of files names name.iso.001, name.iso.002 and so on.

How I can extract or mount it?

cat name.iso.001 name.iso.002 so on > newName.iso

does the job almost all the time. Otherwise there is utility called lxsplit

sudo apt-get install lxsplit

I never used lxsplit but I think the way you use it to join is:

lxsplit -j name.iso.001
