I am wondering if anyone can help. I have bought a manual online and followed instructions to download it. Unfortunately, it appears to have come as an iso file ( I think). I have burnt this to a DVD but am unable to open it as it is 'gobbledygook' . When I try to open it it tells me 'there is no default application to open the document'. I am unable to get back in touch with the seller to recover my money so would appreciate any help however, any assistance would need to be very simple as I am not terribly computer savvy.

Thank you.

    Hello minihaha,

    Here's what I found last night : **

    "PowerISO for OSX -- This is a free utility for Mac OSX  which can extract, list, and convert image files (including ISO, BIN, DAA, and other formats).  Type " poweriso -? " for detailed usage information.  File Size: 243KB   Download Now"

    You only have to place the ISO at the same place as PowerISO (Unix Executable File), and all files in the ISO (which is an uncompressed image) will appear.

    I'm hoping it will help (?)

    With my kind regards,

    Try changing the .iso extension to .cdr. Double click it, and if you are lucky, Disk Utility might be able to open it as a disk image.

    How did you burn it to disc? With Disk Utility or Finder?
