    I have a rar file (something.iso). How to get an .iso image?
    When I try to extract it gives a bunch of sub-folders but no image.
    Anyway to extract it and burn on cd/dvd?

    right click *.iso and burn to dvd with windows. You are opening it, not burning it

    An ISO is a VIRTUAL CD.

    Not really meant to "EXTRACT".

    You should get a program that will create a VIRTUAL drive so you can MOUNT the ISO to read it.

    You can extract it if you want but kind of redundant.

    The OP should maybe think about installing summet like PowerISO, associating .iso files to that app then the little disc icon would show up next to any\all of his future .iso images.
    This would be a good tool for burning .iso images and extracting them.

    Maybe an idea for the next time he installs WinRar or WinZip is to be more mindfull of what it is actually going to do and to make sure it only associates with the correct file types.making sure to un-tab the .iso association. This can be done after installation too.

    I personally keep most of my .iso images within a folder structure which contains a folder called"files" where I keep my extracted image files.

    Windows install images, Office images, Adobe images plus others I keep in this manner.

    I look at an .iso image just as a container and it's the files inside which are important.
