|So far I've had no luck mounting .ISO or .IMG disk images in Windows or MacOS 9, let alone copying the contents to disk...|
What have you done that hasn't worked? And what do you mean by mounting ISOs? Do you mean burning them to CD? It's easy once you understand that an ISO is an entire disk image rather than a file, so copying the ISO file doesn't put the image on the CD (or DVD or floppy).
Yeah, basically a mini-filesystem written out as one long file; an image of a disk, exactly as the name implies.
I guess the simplest way to make a disk image would be to read the entire contents of a disk, sector by sector, and write that to a file. Probably the least efficient for disk space/bandwidth though, because it would read old data from the free blocks, too.
Thanks, ISO Recorder worked out pretty well. Interestingly enough, the system still doesn't seem to recognize an .ISO file as anthing in particular. But it shows up as a right-click menu item, and that's the main thing.
Q: What is the difference between
a joke, and a lie?
A: A lie tends to obscure the truth,
while a joke often reveals it.
