An ISO image is basically an archived file that consists of an identical copy (or image) of an optical disc, such as a CD or DVD, or just of a program found on it.
With the help of disk imaging software or an authoring application, anyone can create an ISO file. To see the content, you can use an archiving tool such as WinZip.
The name comes from a norm published by the International Organization for Standardization, where the file system on optical mediums was specified.
