Have you got an ISO file and you want to access the files inside, but your computer do not have a CD burner to write it on a CD/DVD to then read it? Fortunately you can easily mount ISO files in any latest operating systems with very simple commands and without the need dedicated programs and complex procedures.
Mounted ISO files are like a “virtual CD drive” which behaves exactly as if you inserted a CD/DVD into a CD drive, but with a couple of differences:
- As a pro point since the ISO files reside on your hard drive or SSD, the read speed of the files inside will be faster than a physical CD;
- As a con point, the ISO file will not be available outside of your operating system (so, for example, you can not boot the PC from it).
