    I should not have asked more than one question in a single post- apologies.

    I think I misled you as I have already made the Win 10 DVD from an ISO file a long time ago. I had forgotten and was checking if I did it right with my first comment.

    With the second comment, I was wondering if I could burn any ISO to flash drive with Win 10 only and no 3rd party..

    The third comment, I made in my post, involved me burning DVD videos to a flash drive and someone told me to use ISO files to make it easier. I did not know how to do so and did not understand how it made it easier.

    My level is sort of low so I am avoiding hard to do tasks. I will study all he information given me - thank you.
    for the first comment: try to boot PC with that DVD. If it boots, it's OK :) (well, 99% - boot sectors are the trickiest, the rest is easy..

    You got your answer for second question (I guess)

    For third question, regarding media content on flash drive...*Depends on the device you're playing it on. Most modern TVs, players etc play almost any video content provided on flash drives. ISOs are used to emulate DVD behavior (menus, etc) but not every device can play it.*

    I know I can view the files on my flash drive but I have formatted it. I will undertake this at a later date.
    After much thought and reading it seems that a person could use imgburn to create an ISO from the files or folder. It seems the ISO is similar to the zip in that it holds all the files.
    Then use Rufus to create a bootable flash drive. Just for now, I will stick with the easy way, but, I cannot thank you all for your valuable input and patience. I learned a lot today.

    NO, why would you want to make a roundtrip to making an ISO of local files then extract that ISO to a stick? Just copy the files to the stick straight from your local folder.

    You only need Rufus if you are going to put an operating system on the thumb drive and make that thumb drive bootable so that the Operating System Setup application can start.

    Rufus for an OS so it can boot-got it.
    To put files on a thumb drive I just drag and drop.
