How To Write or Burn Drivers as an ISO Image to CD or DVD?

November 19th, 2010 No comments

From Wikipedia, an ISO image is an archive file (also known as a disc image) of an optical disc (CD/DVD) in a format defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This format is supported by many software vendors. ISO image files typically have a file extension of .ISO.

They may also have an extension of .IMG or .NRG (Nero’s proprietary disc image format). ISO files are actual mirror images or ghost images of complete CDs or DVDs. ISO images can be written or burned on to discs, using many disc writing/recording programs like Nero, Roxio’s Easy CD Creator, etc.

When you download a file with an extension of .ISO or .IMG, and double click on it to open, if you don’t have a disc image writing program like the ones mentioned above, Windows shows a dialogue box, asking you to choose a program to use for writing/burning the image file.

To use the programs contained in the ISO file, you have to write or burn it on to a CD or a DVD (depending on the size of the ISO file). If you don’t have a disc writing program like Nero or Easy CD Creator, download and install a free program like ImgBurn. It’s completely free to use.

Writing or burning an ISO image file to disc is a little bit different than writing or burning normal data files. But you only have to click the right button in the program to do this for you. You don’t have to worry about how the program works. Examples of ISO files are operating system downloads, like the many Linux distros, and any other bootable discs like the Kaspersky Antivirus Rescue CD ISO.
