ISO files represented as folders in windows 7

Hi.

I have ISO files stored on a hard drive. When I plug in my hard drive, Windows 7 shows them as folders with a .iso name extension. Inside each folder is 2 files - one called "1.file" and the other "2.file". How can I get Windows to show and treat the ISO as an ISO file and not as a folder??

I would HIGHLY recommend getting Daemon tools.  I did years ago and have never looked back.

PowerISO is also good, but only works on files 300MB and smaller until you register the software.

i have daemon tools. But when i go to mount the iso it simply opens the iso folder, and doesn't load the iso contents into deamon tools!

My recommendations:
ImgBurn for creating and burning ISO files.
Alcohol 52% Free Edition (but skip the toolbar) for mounting them as virtual drives.
Try reinstalling Daemon Tools or removing it and putting Alcohol on instead - I use it under Windows 7.

To solve your problem, you will need to change the association of the ISO extension. Right click on the ISO and select open with, then set Daemon Tools as the default app. That should sort you out.

Cheers.
