|That would be an "image" of the original CD. There are a few different programs that can create these "images". Many programs use their own formats for these "images", but most should support the .ISO standard format. Some of the others are :- .NRG, .MDS, .UIF, .CCD, and there are more. I try to stick with the standard .ISO format. Some of the programs that can create .ISO images are :- MagicISO, PowerISO, Alcohol120%, etc. You'll probably find that your burning software can make images, but may need to use a non-standard format. Look for a setting to save in .ISO format.|
You'll also need to install a virtual CD/DVD drive, in order to mount the image file for use.
