Read Only File System problem

Forums: 

Howdy,

I created a folder and I did: chmod 777 anotherFolder/

I run:

sudo mount -o loop folder/isoImage.iso anotherFolder/

The permissions of anotherFolder/ changed to Read Only and I can not chmod it back to 777 with sudo. How can I chmod it to 777 ? It outputs me: Read Only File System.

Thank you for any help
