they are images of a CD or DVD. it is possible to mount them with a image mounting program, like alcohol 52% or 120%, or daemon tools. you can also burn them with any burning software.

It only lets me mount to F? Then when I mount it to F another of the same alcholol windows opens.

I used daemon tools before can I just use that?

First you have to create the virtual drive to mount it to. Yes you can you daemon tools.

noo you mount it to f, and run it from there.

the drive f that alcohol and daemon are making is a virtual CD drive. the computer thinks it is a physical drive with a physical CD/DVD in it.
