an iso file is only an image file, to burn to cd.
Use whatever cd burning software, you are using, to burn an image file.

There will be a bin, and a cue file. Just point your software to the cue file, and it will burn it to CD.

iso image files are an image of a disk ready to burn onto blank media and so is setup to open with your burning software. If you mean this assiociation has been broken then

my computer tools folder options file types look for iso on the list and then click on it down the bottom you will see an opens with and a change button click on the change and select which program you wish from the list.

Isobuster click here will allow you to open iso and other image files to see what they contain if that is any help to you

cancel any wizard and choose burn image from the recorder tab.

In Nero under Recorder in menu, click burn image

should add, that in Nero you may have to change the burn image setting, in the drop down menu, to "all files"
