CDBurnerXP, ImgBurn, Rufus, etc...
Quite often when attempting to burn a bootable ISO file to DVD or thumbdrive I encounter the worst frustration trying to identify the "ISO" file from among the many files in an extracted folder. It's a step that is often missing in tutorials seeming to presume foreknowledge.
I'm confused enough that I cannot even frame the question adequately. I've been thoroughly acquainted with the instructions and help files of each of these programs and still unable to identify the most elementary step.... exactly where is the ISO file?
It is never succinctly named. Why is that? There is never a file in a download that is simply labelled "ISO" so that you can click on it and proceed to burn. In frustration I'll just select the entire extracted contents of a folder hoping that the program will automatically find and burn the ISO image but every time I get error messages.
What am I missing?
