First you have to convert it to chd format using chdman

on ubuntu, chdman is found in the mame-tools package from the sdlmame4ubuntu repo, right?

A plain .iso won't work - chdman wants bin/cue.

You'll need the chdman (http://sdlmame.wallyweek.org/download/) Then you'll need to convert the bin/cue or iso/cue to chd using the following [code]chdman -createcd "game.cue" "game.chd"

I'll send you a PM
