18 - ISO Files - Burn, Extract or Mount an ISO file

unique hitsvBulletin statistics

In order to access the files in an ISO image file, you can either (1) burn a CD/DVD and then access the CD/DVD directly, (2) use an application to extract the files from the ISO to a folder on you hard drive or (3) mount the ISO file as a virtual CD/DVD.

1 Burn a CD/DVD
If you have Windows 7, you can use the built-in Windows Disc Image Burner feature by right-clicking on the ISO file as shown below:



If you do not have Windows 7 then you must use an application such as Nero or PowerDVD or any other burning application.

2 Extracting files from an ISO
You can extract files from an ISO file using an application such as 7Zip.

3 Mounting an ISO file
My favourite free application is SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive. Install this and then mount the ISO file as a drive volume by right-clicking on the ISO file:




Once mounted AutoPlay will activate as it has seen a new CD/DVD inserted!



If you have any other favourite apps for ISOs, please let me know and I will add them here.
