You can do it natively in Windows 10 straight from File Explorer.

Right click on the ISO file and choose Burn ... Checkmark the verify checkbox and it will perform a test after burning.

Which tools or apps that you are talking about ?
I uses Rufus last week , but the iSO file can not be found on disk (USB drive).

You CANNOT "burn" to a USB or other hard disc or disc drive. Only to a writable DVD or CD

you only use isoburn etc to burn to a dvd or cd
if using a usb drive, it is simple drag & drop or copy to

if you downloaded an ISO file from Microsoft, just save it or copy it directly to the USB & then plug the usb into the computer you want to install on & the then double click the iso on the USB & it should install

If this is an ISO from microsoft, you cannot just copy the file to a usb or dvd [well you can however it will not do anything]
I assume you are doing this to make a win10 install usb. I would highly advise you to use the microsoft media creation tool. This will make the bootable usb or dvd for you;

You can also use rufus if you really, really do not want to use the ms tool. If intending on using a dvd, either cdburnerxp or imgburn will work.

Already explained to you in post #7
If you are going to use a usb, I would really use the media creation tool from ms.

Are you trying to make a bootable usb or dvd? If you are attempting to make a bootable usb, use the media creation tool. If you are attempting to make a bootable dvd, use either imgburn OR cdburnerxp. Cdburnerxp is the easier of the two to use however imgburn has more options and is made for someone who really understands what they are attempting to do.
