What is a ISO File Type?

ISO files are useful for backing up or copying CDs and DVDs because they copy every bit of data exactly from the disc. C'is different from copying all files from d' a disc because information from l' in-head of disk is lost in the copy process. An ISO file can restore a disc exactly to the original version.

Windows 7 includes a utility called Windows Disc Image Burner that burns ISO images to CDs and DVDs. The utility is located in the WindowsSystem32 directory and has the filename isoburn.exe.

Some ISO files can be loaded by a Sony PSP at the help of the Fast Loader Utility.
