Re: How do i decode ISO files?

It's a disc image file. Any CD burning/DVD authoring program you have might recognize it and burn it to CD for you.

But I have used PowerISO before -
http://www.poweriso.com/

Been a long time since I've come across an ISO file, so that might let you do what you want. ISOs always kind of confused me, but they can be burned and watched as Video CD.

You might have some luck with googling "ISO converter" if you want to view it on your computer without burning it. Looks like there are a few out there - but I haven't used them.

Hope this helps!

Re: How do i decode ISO files?

there is one program 7z yes "7z" it will open just about anything from .cab to .zip .iso it will extract what can be extracted into a folder and you can see what you can do. This program is free: http://www.7-zip.org

7-Zip is open source software. Most of the source code is under the GNU LGPL license. The unRAR code is under a mixed license: GNU LGPL + unRAR restrictions.

A free CD image that will mount ISO's is Virtual CloneDrive. It does a lot more that ISO's but this program is freaking awesome...

PowerISO and MagicISO both work very well.  I found that loading both the ISO file and the ISO decoding program onto a 2 or 4 gig flashdrive is the way to go.

Yep, Elle is right, its just an image file.   There are tons of apps out there to help you out.   I use MagicISO alot and it works fine.   Again, just as she said....Google is your  friend.   Plus you may want to check out download.com.

Microsoft made a little program that allows you to mount .iso files as virtual drives, you can download that.

click here

note: link takes you directly to download. I copied the link from this website and I've used the program; but I don't know where Microsoft's own page for the product is.
