    I know someone here has to use newgroups so this seems to be the right place. Anyway, I dled a HD rip of Transformers and after extracting the RAR files they were joined into a .iso file. How do I play the video file or convert it to something like .mkv or such like most of the other HD content I've dled? Thanks in advance!

    Mount it with Daemon Tools, open it in the virtual drive, let the gooey insides spill out.

    I have a 1tb external that I'm using as a storage drive. Why would I want to burn it to a dvd first and have to compress it and diminish the quality?

    Double click the .iso file to mount the volume and see what's inside.

    If you're with a Mac, can't you just mount it? Either that or burn it, should have the video files on there?
