how to download the content with .iso extent into the computer to see
I use WinMount to extract ISO, mount ISO as a disk, make a ISO file. Only one software will do.
I would like to know about what is an ISO file how can it be open in windows vista and windows 7
I have downloaded a xp ghost file it says it is an ISO file it was in zip format upon unzipping it gave 4-5 files with different extensions like bin how do I install or use the software
Thanks in advance and regards
I am very new to computer
I love your site, I love that you take your time to publish for people like me, I love the way you explain so simply and I love the link to buy you a latte or link to your site. Being a newbie, I guess I will have to try the link first. But what it did chime in my mind was if you could post in a procedural manner such as "task". I read and read and the words make sense but when I open my [chime] file - it being rather simplified], I get nothing. I need steps 1., 2., and 3. so I can perform the action myself therefore putting it to memory. Thanks for everything Leo!
Deamon Tools is also a way to extract data from ISO Files.
I just downloaded MS Office Suite as an ISO file. I tried to use ISObuster to extract the files to my hard drive, which it did successfully, however, when I attempt to launch the EXE file, I am getting an error that says "...the languageo of the file is not reconizable by the system..." I contacted Microsoft...they believe it might be an ISO software issue. I read above about Winmount. I will try that next, hopefully it will have a "trial download".
Thanks for the insight on the ISO files, I will comment on my success or lack thereof, with Winmount. Anybody have any similiar issuew with ISObuster??
i have downloaded a book, which is in .iso format.
i had extracted by WINRAR and then I got the setup.exe file and some more files. then, I have installed the book, while opening the book, it is asking me that " it can't be opened without the original CD placed in the disk.
please give me the solution to open the book.
I've recently created a virtual drive in windows 7, but I can't seem to open the game I want to play. All files are in said drive, but everyone talks about an ISO file I need to open. I can't find anything labelled as an ISO file and I can't seem to create the cd/dvd image from the real cd either, because I'm using a netbook.
I recommend Virtual Clone Drive from SlySoft. Once installed it creates a virtual drive. You can easily mount an iso file by double clicking the file. You can download it free at http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html
Whenever I get something commercial on disk (install media for a new system, peripheral, or software distribution), the first thing I do is make an iso file from each disk. I then put the physical disks safely away and install only from the iso. Not only is it faster but I never wear out the originals.
To post a comment on "What are iso files, and how do I open them?", please return
to that article's main page.
