hi. got a few questions.. been doing some searches on the issue of ISO file.
found quite a bit of misinformation, incomplete information, conflicting
information.. so let's get the record straight.. preferably from experts..
to the benefit of future google users.
here are the questions:
1) what is an ISO file?
what I think: an ISO file is a "zip" file, so to speak, of a set of files
from a CD-ROM which was recorded using the ISO format. of coursem unlike a
zip file, there is no compression.
2) what an ISO file is not?
what I think: it is not an image file. there are information on a ISO format
CD-ROM which cannot be store in an ISO file. for instance, the physical
location of a file on the CD-ROM.
3) what hardware is needed to create an ISO file?
what I think: any CD-ROM
3) what software is needed to create an ISO file?
what I think: any software that can read from a CD-ROM drive
that's it. I think I'm right on all counts but please let me know if I'm
