Before you proceed ahead with knowing what an ISO burner tool does, it would be better to know first what exactly an ISO file is. ISO file is actually an archive file format abbreviated from (International Organization of Standardization). It usually comes with an extension of .iso. Most of the softwares and operating system are transformed into ISO images which are nothing but an amalgamation of innumerable files compressed and transformed into an image file called ISO image file.

Now the next question might arise, that how to transfer these files to a disk such as CD/DVD, or USB in order to make a bootable disk? Well, if you are a beginner, then you must be thinking about copy the ISO file and paste in the disk.

By burning, a separate partition will be created within the disk and all the files will be laid out in an executable format.

Thus for the purpose of burning the ISO image files, there comes the need of an application called free ISO burner, few of which are described below in this article in full length.
