    What can I do with these files? Can I take them and burn them onto a cd and make it readable to windows??

    That's what they are for. They are CD images and most CDR software can use them to burn a CD.

    After you burn the CD, can you go into WIndoze Explorer and see the files on the CD? If you can, look for an autorun.inf file. The problem is probably with the way you are doing the burn. Go to their web site and look at the FAQ...explains it in detail.

    The file itself looks like this:
    >>>>myturo1.iso.exe
    I double click it and it say its not a valid win32 application.
    I'm running win98se.
    Is there software to safely open this type of file>>>???

    Some knucklehead changed the file extension to .exe. On your hard drive, right click the file name and select rename. Take the .exe off of the end of the file name and try to burn it again with the directions I sent you in the previous post.

    Windows still recognizes it as an application, and I still do not know how to change it...

    You need to rename the file like I stated previously, I don't think I told you to look at the files properties.
