Review of WinISO | Great Tool for ISO Files

winiso-boxWelcome to my Review of WinISO Standard 6. I little while ago I wrote a post about ISO files and how smart they are when you work with many big files, Operating Systems or you maybe need to switch between many different CD/DVD’s all the time. In this post I will like to introduce you to a great tool for working with ISO files called WinISO. With WinISO you can pretty much do anything with the ISO format that you will need.

What is an ISO file?

ISO files
An ISO file or an ISO image is an uncompressed archive file containing an optical disk image of a CD-ROM or DVD. The name ISO is taken from the ISO 9660 file system. ISO files can contain all kind of data that you can put on a CD or DVD e.g. Operating Systems, applications, videos and anything else you can put on a disc. The smart thing about an ISO files is that you can burn it directly to a CDROM or DVD media. There are also tools available that let you mount an ISO file as a virtual disc drive and run the content from there. I have earlier written a post about one of my favorites named Virtual CloneDrive. If you prefer to burn the ISO file, Windows 7 has a built-in application that can do just that named Isoburn.
