    i was on a rom website (i was about to post the website, but i would get banned, just wanted someone to look, but i would get banned anyways, because you cant post roms here, remember how the registration thing had 28421 lines about "there are no roms on gba temp [​IMG], so there im not gonna get banned for posting this thread) it has roms, and isos... like neo geo CD isos, dream cast isos.. wat is it, is it like roms ripped from a ds (edit: lol i said ds... i meant CD) or somethin?

    They're Disc Images, essentially ROMs from games on CD/DVD. But there can also be ISOs of DVD movies too.

    This, and think of them as a zip file containing files ripped from a CD in a package.
