An ISO image is an archive file of an optical disc that contains the data contents of every written sector of an optical disc, including the optical disc file system. ISO images can be created from optical discs or from a collection of files by image creation software which in turn can be used to write optical discs.
The contents of a downloaded ISO file can be accessed only by writing it to a CD/DVD disk. Now we have found a way to so that you can access contents of ISO images file without writing to optical media. A utility called ISO Opener allows you to extract all the content of an ISO file on your hard drive.
Just download this utility and install it on your system. When you will launch the application you will see a window opening in front of you similar to the screenshot above. Select the ISO file that you want to extract by clicking on “open” button and specify the output folder from the explorer, once all set click on Extract button to let the program do the rest.
We have used this software and it is doing fine. It extracts the content perfectly on your hard drive (the output folder that you have selected). This program is a freeware that works on all versions of windows including Windows 8. Just be sure that the output folder has the sufficient space to get the file extracted, otherwise there will be issues in extraction.
