How do I work with ISO files?

Follow these instructions to mount, burn, or unpack an ISO file.

Instructions:

An ISO file is an image of a CD or DVD. The most common ways to work with these files are:

  • Windows 8/10 or macOS will open these files natively when they are double clicked.  A new drive letter will be created showing the contents of the ISO.
  • Virtual CloneDrive is a third party Windows package that can be used on Windows 7 to mount CD/DVD image files onto a Virtual drive and work with them as though they were on a disc in your regular DVD/CD drive.
  • Rufus can be used to create a bootable USB device from an ISO, or to simply replicate the ISO onto a USB drive for software installs.
  • 7-Zip or similar software can be use to extract individual files from an ISO.
  • ImgBurn or similar software can be used to burn an ISO onto a blank DVD.
