More about what image file
  1. Wikipedia gives a good description of ISO files.
  2. get ImageBurn its free, this will allow you to make an .iso image of the disc.
  3. An ISO or .iso file is a CD image. A copy of all the contents off a CD. The .iso files can be extracted with winRAR compression or some other iso software.

    Imgburn can create .iso, and also can burn iso images to a CD

    winRAR can extract the content from an .iso file

    .iso is good for backing up CD's to your hard drive, just in case that something may happen to your physical CDs.
