ISO files won't open.

by Jimrin1967 / December 31, 2005 12:39 AM PST

I recently downloaded an ISO file and burned it to disk using a program called ISOpen. I have done this before with no problem. This particular ISO has folders and sub-folders including some ZIP files. Even though I burned the image to disk, I can't open the zips and the EXE files won't work. What do I have to do to make the files from the image readable and usable? I have burned and used other ISO files using this program. I just haven't run into this problem.

Name of the .ISO, where can we look at it?

Maybe it's just defective. We'll look at it if you can supply the details.
