An ISO image is a back up file that may be utilised to create identical copies of file structures, files and data stored on your hard drive. ISO images are source files used for creating digital media. Mounting an ISO image on a drive means placing the data on the drive so that it can be used or viewed. Many smaller computer models do not have CD/DVD drives, so USB drives are used instead to install or transfer data. Mounting an ISO image to your USB drive only takes a few steps to configure.

Download the Windows 7 USB/DVD utility (See "Resources.") Download the ISO AVDP copy tool.

Attach your USB drive to your computer and copy the ISO file to your ":C/" drive.

Click "Start." Select "Programs," "Accessories and click "Command Prompt." Enter "c:\" type "isoavdpcopy.exe." within the command line.

Enter "isoavdpcopy " within the next line and replace "filename" with the name of the ISO file. Type "Exit" at the command prompt.

Click "Start" and click "Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool" to open the utility.

Click "Browse" within the source file dialogue box and select the ISO file from the "Open" dialogue box and then, click "Next." Choose "USB Device" to create a copy on your USB drive. Select "USB Flash Drive" in the next dialogue box drop down menu and click "Begin Copying." You have now mounted an ISO image to a USB drive.
