What is ISO File

Definition: An ISO file, often called an ISO image, is in fact an "image" of
an entire CD or DVD. The entire contents of a disc can be perfectly
represented in a single ISO file.

You can think of an ISO file like a box that holds all the parts to something
that needs built - like a child's toy you might buy that requires assembly.
The box that the toy pieces come in does you no good as an actual toy but
the contents inside of it, once taken out and put together, become what
you're actually wanting to use.

An ISO file is the same way. The file itself is no good unless it can be
opened, assembled, and used. The most common way to make use of an
ISO file is to burn the ISO file to a CD or DVD. It's a different process than
burning an MP3 file or a document to a disc because your CD/DVD burning
software must "assemble" the contents of the ISO file onto the disc.
ISO image files are often used to distribute large programs over the
Internet due to the fact that all of the program's files can be neatly
contained as a single file - the ISO file.

ISO images end in the file extension ISO. For example, the free Ophcrack
password recovery tool (which contains an entire operating system and
several pieces of software) is downloaded as the
ophcrack-vista-livecd-2.0.iso file.
