Do I need to open an ISO file before burning it?

    I have downloaded the GParted ISO file which must be burned to a CD or DVD but all instructions to do this do not mention if it needs to be opened first.

    Please advise - thanks.

    Just burn it to a CD.

    Make sure that you burn it as an ISO image, do not simply burn the file to the CD - that will be of no use. You need to tell your burning software that this is an ISO image and needs to be treated accordingly.

    Yes I'll try again as I may have made that mistake. Perhaps the proof is that I can open the CD which shows 5 folders and 2 files.

    Thanks for reminding me.
