The Thunar icon for an iso looks like a blank sheet of paper..... How to assign an icon that looks like a CD/DVD for iso files?

File association are defined by *.desktop and mimeinfo.cache in /usr/share/applications/ or in ~/.local/share/applications/. I think that this also define what icon name are associated.

Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...
Found an easy way to do this and want to pass it on.......
I'm running Arch, so some details will have to be change to suit your distro.
This is how I changed my *.iso icon from a blank file looking icon to a nice cd/dvd icon.
1) Built and installed assogiate from the AUR
2) Assogiate wouldn't run im my user account so....
3) I ran it in gksu ie: $ gksu assogiate
4) Click the Database tab and select the "system database"
5) Use the search function to find "iso". My search results showed a single entry with the name "x-iso9660-image"
6) Double click the entry to edit the "default icon"
7) Click on the box to the right of the default icon file listing, navigate to your icon of choice and select it.
8) Re-login to update the mime database.

Unfortunately, the above solution stopped working for some reason. So far, I tried rebuilding and reinstalling assogiate on my current updated system.
Running Arch linux 64bit, linux 3.9.4-1, assogiate 0.2.1-5, xfdesktop 4.10.2-1, thunar 1.6.3-1
Anyone have a solution for this?

Tracked down a problem for assogiate to use an .svg icon. Switching to a .png icon restored function as expected, but using png's looked bad scaled up.
On my system, I reinstalled the current versions of librsvg python2-rsvg packages. This solved all the problems...
I had a problem in Arch with some icons being replaced by this “blank sheet of paper” recently. I think it was caused by the librsvg update, or something related. I had to run a command to get my icons back; I think it was this one:
sudo /usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache
