Viewing or opening iso files


paleung

Question

Can the iso files be viewed? I have an iso file and I'm not sure what is on it. Can it be opened and viewed to see the contents? When I try to open it, disc copier opens...

 

Also, are the iso files complete and independent? What I mean is that I used a captured movie, still images, etc when I created the iso file. If I move or delete the captured movie or still images, will I still be able to burn the iso file later? Or will the iso file look for the movie and images.

 

Thanks! I know these are probably basic questions, but searching "iso" doesn't work.

An ISO file is a complete 'image' of what would be on a disc, so your source files are not needed by it.

 

Yes, you can see what is in the image file. I believe you've posted before that you have one of the EMC 8 versions, not a standalone of MyDVD or Videowave, so you can just use 'Disc Image Loader' to create a virtual disc drive that you can then 'mount' that ISO file on and it will show up and behave just like a physical disc/drive would.

Once Disc Copier is open, click on the Browse For image.... Browse for your ISO file. It will come up in Media Selector, and you can then preview the ISO. See attached picture.
