ISO File

ISO is a disk image defined by the International Organization for Standardization.

The name ISO is taken from the ISO 9660 file system used with CD-ROM media, but an ISO image can also contain UDF file system because UDF is backward-compatible with ISO 9660.

An ISO file contains the image of a disk, meaning that it contains every file and folder that the disk had. There's nothing about the ISO format that actually knows about files, folders or formats. It's just the raw data from the disk. Now, naturally that raw data, if interpreted correctly, may know about files, folders and format. But, like a disk, the operating system has to look, see what format was used (things like FAT32, NTFS and the like), and interpret the contents of the ISO file as if it were reading the raw data from an actual disk.

An ISO image is an image of files that can be burnt to a CD. Before burning it off on a CD, you can follow the instructions below to open the ISO file and edit its contents. There are quite a lot of programs to open ISO files.
