What's an ISO and how do I use it?

An ISO is a file that represents a CD. It contains all the data needed to recreate the CD it was copied from. You can burn this image to a CD or "mount" it and access it from "virtual" CD ROM.

To mount the image, use DAEMON Tools. You can download DAEMON Tools here.

  1. Install DAEMON Tools.
  2. DAEMON Tools will add a new virtual CD ROM drive.
  3. Right-click the DAEMON Tools icon in the system tray.
  4. Select Virtual CD Rom, then Device, then Mount.
  5. Select the ISO image you downloaded.
DAEMON Tools will load your ISO into the new virtual CD ROM it created. Now, you can access the virtual CD ROM just like you would with a normal CD.
