ISO files are actually images of complete CDs compiles as one whole image, just like Ghost does for hard disks and partitions. ISO images can be loaded into several different CD recording software packages to create CDs.
Thanks for your replies which basically tells one how to burn an ISO. Please could you tell me why would you want to burn an ISO file to a CD - for what purpose(s) would it be useful for ? Thanks David
ISO files contain EVERYTHING in the one file,so that the end user only has to place the CD into their CD-ROM and click "Go" If you were to copy the folder from your hdd of an application(game/Office,etc)thats installed there to a CD,that CD couldn't be used to install the same app onto another hdd.ISO files contain the lot,Installer,App,autorun,etc.
