How to Burn Iso Files

Have you just downloaded a software or a game from the Internet but can't open it? I bet it is an ISO format file, is that so? Well then there is good news to come. ISO files are nothing more than containers - technically called image files - in which all the data that was originally hosted by various types of media, such as a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray, are reserved.

Images in ISO format can be opened as if they were common packages in zip format (using applications such as WinRAR or 7-Zip), they can be "mounted" in virtual CD / DVD drives (as I explained to you in my tutorial on how to open ISO files) or you can burn them to diskettes in order to restore them to their original form. If you want to opt for the latter option and are looking for advice on how to burn ISO files, know that you have come to the right place at the right time.

Below are listed some software that allow you to burn ISO files on Windows and macOS in an extremely easy and fast way. Choose the one that best suits your needs and find out how to use it by following the instructions I am about to give you. I assure you it will be much easier than you imagine. Happy reading and have fun!

All you have to do is select the ISO file to burn, right click on it and choose the item Burn disc image from the menu that appears. In the window that opens, choose the speed at which to burn the disk, click on the button Burn And that's it.


Turning to third-party software, I can only recommend ImgBurn, a free, easy-to-use application that allows you to burn (and create) CD, DVD and Blu-Ray image files for any type of content: games, software, films and much more.
