How To Burn ISO Files

What is an ISO file?

So you want to learn how to burn ISO files but you aren´t really sure what an ISO is or where to start?

An ISO file is basically an exact replica of a CD that has been converted into a single file. It contains all the original file-system metadata from the CD or DVD such as boot code, file-structure and attributes. The main reason for the existence this file type is to enable people to be able to convert a CD or DVD into a file format which can be easily shared over the internet. Once the file is received it can then be burned back onto a CD or DVD by the reciprocant. It also has the ability to be loaded onto a virtual CD/DVD drive which will emulate a physical drive on your system. This means a performance boost and easy storage of your CD´s or DVD’s on your hard-drive.
