As the image files of an optical disc, ISO file is widely used in many occasions. An ISO file can be used to contain an installation file, a movie or even an operating system. ISO files are usually extracted or created from a disc like DVD or CD. However, it's also possible to manually create an ISO file from other file formats, like MP4. Today we are going to talk about how to convert MP4 to ISO, and the main program that we are going to use is a traditional DVD burning program, ImgBurn. Also we are going to introduce another practical program to finish the job in a different way, but first let's focus on how to convert MP4 to ISO with ImgBurn.
Part 1: About ISO and ImgBurn
Before we start to convert MP4 to ISO ImgBurn, we need to know something about the ISO file itself and the program ImgBurn.
ImgBurn is a DVD/CD disc authoring program that allows the burning of many types of CD, DVD and Blu-Ray images to recordable media. ImgBurn supports a wide range of image file formats, including BIN, CCD, CDI, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI. It can burn Audio CD's from any file type supported via DirectShow / ACM, it can build DVD Video discs, and supports Unicode folder/file names so that you shouldn't run in to any problems if you're using an international character set.
ImgBurn supports all the Microsoft Windows OS's, from Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT4 to Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 (including all the 64-bit versions). ImgBurn is a very flexible application with several advanced features. For example, It supports all the latest drives without the need for updates
With ImgBurn, you can burn everal images to DVD at the same time. There is an image queue system for when you're burning several images (which you can automatically share between multiple drives if you have more than one) and an easy-to-use layer break selection screen for double layer DVD Video jobs. The Automatic Write Speed feature allows you store your favourite burn speed. Data captured during the burn (write speed, buffer levels etc) can be displayed / analysed using DVDInfoPro. With all the burning technology, it is netural for ImgBurn to be one of the best choices when it comes to burning MP4 to ISO.
About ISO files
As an image file for an optical disc, ISO files are individual files that are perfect representations of the entire CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray discs. The entire contents of a disc can be precisely duplicated in a single ISO file. ISO images are often used to distribute large programs over the internet due to the fact that all of the program's files can be neatly contained as a single file. It can contain an entire movie, a program installation or even an operating system file.
ISO files are often extracted or copied from optical discs. However, you can sometimes also convert a file or a folder directly from your computer to an ISO file. To do this, you are going to need some software like ImgBurn
