How To Open Iso File

An ISO file is an optical disc containing data of written sector of optical disc. It is easier to use than the discs and the DVDs.

Today I am going to show you how to open an ISO file. An ISO file is an image of a DVD or a CD that you can use instead of actually using the CD or the DVD. In order to open an ISO file the first thing you need is an ISO file so we have this one here as a demonstration.

They're usually quite big because they take an image of an actual CD or DVD so in this case you can see if I move with the mouse over you can see that the size is 695 MB, about the size of a CD. Now in order to open that you're going to need a program which is called Magic Disc that can be downloaded by going to Google and type Magic Disc or Magic ISO and you can download the latest version from there. Once you've done that and you've installed it, you'll need to run it the normal way.

So you go to all programs, go to Magic Disc and click on the icon. It doesn't appear that anything has happened but you will notice on the bottom right hand corner we now have a picture of a hand with the disc. And what we're going to have to do is use that program to open up the ISO file, so what we do is we right click it, go to Virtual CD-ROM and what this does is it makes the computer think there's an additional CD-ROM drive in it and we're going to put a Virtual image into that virtual CD-ROM drive.

So we click on no media, we click on mount. Mount is another word for opening; we go to the desktop, find that Demo ISO and then click open. And what will happen is the computer now thinks that we have just installed a disc into the computer.

I go into My Computer, it looks here that we have another disc drive and in this case it's in a bank through CD. It looks like we've got to drive there with that CD sitting in it when actually we don't. So instead of running the program it actually opens the folder, these are all the files which are on that ISO file.

And then you can do with them as you wish. So I am just showing you how to open an ISO file, it's a great way of storing discs and DVDs on your computer without having to hold on to the physical discs. And that's how to open an ISO file.
