    I'm downloading a file from a pal that' s coming through as an ISO file. Looks like a regular stuffed OSX icon, but with .iso as the extension.

    What do I do with it when it's done downloading? It's a movie file.

    Cheers.

    You should be able to burn it with disk utility (I believe) or some other disk burning software. Then you can open view the movie from the disk.

    ISO is just a disk image.

    It may mount on your desktop as is (I'm not sure).

    Note, if its a its a bootable iso, it wont boot if you burn it with Disk Utility, howerver if its a DVD image, it will work like a normal DVD.

    Dont know why my linux isos dont boot up after i burn em with Disk Utility

    Should work like any other disc image. Just mount it, or burn it using Disk Utility or a program like Toast if you have one.

    There is another program like FireStarter or that, that'll help you burn ISO files, freeware, just search for ISO on http://www.versiontracker.com

    #1 - your reply offers no help whatsoever to the OP's initial question, so why bother posting?

    #2 - So what if it is a DVD image? Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone. :p ;) :cool:

    It is a dvd image.

    My friend is a 3D animator, and he's put 2 hours of stuff together for me. Hi end stuff.

    So I've got it downloaded. Theres about 40 files in the video ts folder. Do I need to burn it to disk, or is there a way I can turn it into one file that I can just play on dvd, or any of the media players...?

    You should just be able to open DVD Player and point that to the video_ts folder. If you burn it you should be able to play it on a standalong DVD player.

    As an alternative use Toast 6/7 to burn your Video_TS folder as a DVD
