you dont BURN the iso image on a hard drive, the iso is a file what you need to use it wihout a drive is a program to access it, daemontools lite lets you mount the ISO image as if it where a cd in a drive and run its contents. All an ISO is is a file container like any other file inside of which is the actual contents, its just a format that is used on cds.

There's 2 ways you can do it.. the easiest is to just boot the iso file right from the hard drive. If you're doing this to install an OS, meaning you need to boot into the iso... there's DOS and linux boot utilities that you can either load onto a floppy disk or a small usb stick, then you specify what and where your file is that you want to boot.. ie: what partition/directory. The second method... use an image writer... burn to the hard drive. I'm not sure about windows, but there's free apps in linux. I'm guessing PowerISO would do the same in windows.

"Burning" is the process of the laser burning in a pattern of darker/lighter pattern to have information added to the pre-pressed disc, (Blank CD-R). Since we are not altering a plastic disc, the only other thing we can do here is "mount" the image in a live operating system such as Windows.
personally, I use PowerISO, others use Alcohol 120%. They may cost $$ (Although people get them for free via torrents) . But there is a free ISO image reader that has a lot of the basic fucntions you need.
^^ Simple program that you just browse for the image and it mounts it. When the image is mounted it will show up as another drive under My Computer usually because it needs to create a temporary virtual disk per say to read the ISO.Source(s): http://www.isodisk.com/ Network/Security Admin 6+ years

You can extract an iso into a folder on the hard drive using something like winrar. Not exactly burning to the hard drive, but you should still be able to run the particular program from there.

i dont quite know what you mean by that. An iso is an image file usually of a disc. There are programs that you can use to read the file to access the information. These programs use a virtual drive to make the comp its a disc in. UltraIso, PowerIso, Alcohol, and Daemon Tools do this. If your running vista you need to find a version made specifically for vista or it will make vista crash.

A good burning software I recommend is Ashampoo Burning. It's 100% free and can be downloaded here: http://bit.ly/1lAUAUs
If you want to create a DVD that works on a common DVD player, you definitely need a burning software. Copying the files of the movie as is won't work (If you do so your DVD player will not be able to play the video/movie properly). Ashampoo is a good option for every "burning need". It's reliable and professional, It can be used both for CDs and DVDs and it's very easy to use.

No you cannot. Why don't you just mount it on a virtual drive?
