ISO images are great because they’re self-contained, perfect representations of the data on a disc. Being single files, they’re easier to store and organize than outright copies of the folders and files on a disc would be. Nowadays, more and more people like to extract an ISO file from a Blu-ray or DVD disc, and then save it on computer’s hard drive so that they can use it as a virtual disc with computer’s Blu-ray player software or DVD player software to view the movie or use the ISO image file to burn new copies of favorite movie without needing the original disc.
